New academic year starts this Monday in Portugal


Lisbon, Portugal (by Naveed Ahmed): The new coronavirus pandemic has killed more than 920,000 people worldwide and infected more than 28.8 million – more than 300,000 in the past 24 hours. Israel decrees a new three-week confinement that coincides with three very important religious celebrations for Jews. New academic year starts this Monday in Portugal. Portugal registered between the 7th and the 13th of September one of the weeks with the highest number of confirmed cases of covid-19, since the pandemic of the new coronavirus began. 3725 new infections were found, 1235 more than in the previous week. The increase has been steady, but for Pedro Simas, virologist and researcher at the João Lobo Antunes Institute of Molecular Medicine (IMM), in Lisbon, there is no cause for alarm. “We are still doing well, these results are perfectly normal,” he says to DN. If the concern has a reference, Pedro Simas fixes it at 5,000 cases per week. It is natural that with the arrival of more people to Portugal in August, and even with the movement of the Portuguese on vacation, the cases increase, but everything is under control”, assumes the virologist, who has become one of the known faces of the Portuguese since the beginning of the pandemic.
