The prime minister admitted this Tuesday that the vaccination conditions in the next two weeks will be “more uncomfortable”, due to the acceleration effort needed to face the fourth of the covid-19 that affects the country, and warned that the fight not finished.

“The country is still facing this difficult pandemic, we are even facing the fourth wave of this pandemic. And we cannot distract ourselves, we cannot relax, this requires us to really speed up the vaccination process. A great effort will be made in the next two weeks, with conditions that will be more uncomfortable for those who are vaccinated, but which will reinforce the safety of everyone and particularly of those who will see the second dose of vaccination more quickly reached”, said António Costa.

“This is a fight that hasn’t ended, it’s a fight that has to continue and we have to fight it,” he said.

On Monday, Vice Admiral Gouveia e Melo, who coordinates the task force responsible for vaccination against covid-19, said that the possibility of long lines at the vaccination centers was expected due to the increased pace of the process, but acknowledged that it is a problem and will have to be resolved.

The covid-19 pandemic has caused at least 3,980,935 deaths worldwide, resulting from more than 183.7 million cases of infection by the new coronavirus.

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic in Portugal, 890,571 cases of infection have already been detected, 17,117 people have died.
