“Freedom day” from Covid restrictions ‘could come on April 3’

In perhaps the worst example of timing yet, DGS health director Graça Freitas has chosen the moment ‘war breaks out in Europe’ to announce that Portugal’s ‘freedom day’ (from Covid restrictions) could come on April 3. In typical fashion she adds “this could always change”. It is for now ‘a projection’, she insists, as the world’s focus is about as far from Covid-19 as it is on next Christmas.
