Today, the 2nd of May, Pingo Doce Supermarkets started selling disposable protective face masks (which consist of three layers of protection, with easily adjustable elastic ties), in its stores across the region. Each box contains 50 disposable masks and retails at € 26.99 a box.
By the time the stores opened, there were already long queues as people waited anxiously to get theirs before they ran out. To prevent mask hoarding, masks are only available at the supermarket checkout and are limited to one box per person.
