Portuguese in South Africa “not happy over 14-day quarantine rule”, says Consul

Portuguese living in South Africa “do not understand” why authorities here insist they should go into 14-days quarantine on arrival home. They claim incidence levels in South Africa are low, and the country is on minimum restrictions. They are perfectly happy to be submitted to Covid tests pre-travel, but cannot see the need for quarantine. Says South Africa’s Portuguese consul Vasco Pinto de Abreu, the requirement is “affecting many compatriots” who would normally return here with their children in June/ July, (coinciding with South African school holidays) to enjoy a bit of extra sun (South Africa’s winter falls during Portugal’s summer).
