DGS ponders end of daily Covid bulletins

DGS health director Graça Freitas has confirmed her authority is close to ending the daily ‘Covid’ bulletins that are published religiously by the press. In interview with Público she said it is time for the country to start returning to normal. Critics have long advocated a move away from tunnel-focus on Covid-19, particularly as every day so many more people are dying from other pathologies, a number of them arguably due to the lack of public health response because of the pandemic.
