We Are So Not Over The Pandemic!

While visiting the Santa Casa da Misericórdia in Machico, the President of the Regional Government, Miguel Albuquerque, thanked everyone for for their exemplary work, particularly during the pandemic, saying “that we are perhaps overcoming the crisis of our generation, with its devastating socio economic effects.” 

However, he was less praiseworthy of those seen last weekend in the Old Town of Funchal, who were paying little heed to social distancing or mask wearing.  “We are” he said “still in the grips of the pandemic, it has not gone away and can take hold at a moments notice. It is an ever present danger!”
