Portugal reported no coronavirus-related deaths on Monday from a day earlier for the first time since mid-March, when a lockdown was put in place, and the lowest number of new infections in almost three months.
“It has been very difficult in recent times – we are very happy this happened,” the secretary of state for health, Antonio Sales, said as he teared up during a news conference.
“I want to leave this message of hope to the Portuguese but I want to ask them to help us maintain these numbers,” he said.
