Portugal’s prime minister, Antonio Costa, has expressed his disagreement with the United Kingdom’s decision this Sunday to impose a mandatory quarantine for Portuguese people, a measure that mainly affects tourism.
“From a health point of view, objectively, it is not a situation that warrants such measures,” Costa told Madeira, according to the Portuguese newspaper ‘Diario de Notías’.
Asked about possible economic motivations, Costa has said he does not want to enter into “interpretations”. “It would not be useful for talks with the United Kingdom to enter into this kind of speculation or say exactly what I think.”
In addition, Costa recalled that “the old Indian version, the delta version, we all know there are many more cases in the UK than in Portugal” of the mutation. There are twelve cases in the U.S. and many more in the United Kingdom,” he argued.
Costa has assured that the government has transferred all necessary information to the United Kingdom and therefore expects “they will be vulnerable to serious damages to their freedom of movement on their terms.”
“This loss is done to those who have already paid for their holidays, who are going on leave (…). Obviously, it is also very disturbing for the life of the British,” he said. indicated.
