The Minister of Home Affairs made an initial assessment today at the beginning of the night on the application of the decree on the state of emergency. Eduardo Cabrita revealed that seven arrests were made for crimes of disobedience. One of the people who was arrested was infected with the coronavirus.
The minister began by emphasizing the “generalized adherence of the Portuguese” to measures to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Eduardo Cabrita praised the “spirit of responsibility” and “civility that“ all Portuguese ”manifested before“ the indispensable restrictions on the right of movement ”.
However, there were some cases that forced the authorities to act. The minister gave the example of the people who joined the Marginal de Esposende and Póvoa do Varzim. Two “punctual” situations that required police intervention.
