The President of the Regional Government admitted today that in order to contain the pandemic he is considering the possibility of maintaining the current curfew beyond Easter. While visiting AquiMadeira, he spoke to journalists saying, “I ponder, because I think the curfew has been one of the secrets to containing the pandemic. I think that the curfew does not harm the economy so much, it does not harm our personal lives, it does not affect us psychologically, but it is very important to prevent unacceptable social contact. Everything will remain as it is, until it is safe to review the situation.”
Over the last couple of weeks, comments regarding the curfew extension have been mainly positive, however, the mood of the people is changing, especially as people are beginning to see no end in sight and a virus that is still terrorising the island.
