Minister calls for ‘reflection’ on latest Covid measures

Minister for Modernisation of the State Alexandra Leitão has called today for balance between the restrictive measures imposed in the name of the pandemic and the knowledge of “how we are going to recover our individual liberties”. In a column in Expresso she suggests the issue is every bit as serious as the ‘sanitary and economic crisis’ – and that she hopes the State will reject any kind of new normality “based on restrictive measures which we cannot get used to”.
