Response

Information access

Information about the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic in the country is hosted on the DGS home website. [36] However, due to the severity of the pandemic a separate website was created dedicated specifically to coronavirus information and updates under the Portuguese Ministry of Health. [37] Another governmental website was later created to deal with more generic information explaining the emergency status, public information and exceptional measures to help business. [38]

The Ministry of Health provides a web page with information for the public about different areas, [39] including brochures, orientation and guidance for different activity sectors, how to deal with self-isolation, and quarantine games for children. As an example there are several Portuguese food recipes with canned food. [40]

Fiscal Policy Response

In 2020, Portugal allocated €600 million per month to financial support for workers furloughed by their employers. [42] Roughly €1.3 billion were allocated to incentivize a gradual reopening and return to economic activity, and €13 billion in lines of credit were extended to small and mid-size businesses. [42] Tax and Social Security Contribution deferrals totaling €7.9 billion for companies and employees were enacted. [42] The APOIAR Program was introduced, extending €.8 billion in loans to small businesses. [42] As of March 12th, an additional €296 million were allocated to improving the capacity of the National Health System. [43]

The 2021 budget includes extension of support for businesses, including assistance with non-housing rents for some firms, with subsidies of up to 50% of rent being granted. [42] Large companies in sectors of the economy hurt by the pandemic, namely the tourism sector, received €750 billion in loans and subsidies. [42] On August 2nd, 2021, support available for businesses forced to remain closed via the APOIAR program was increased, with small businesses whose income declined by more than 50% being eligible for €41,250 in financial support. [44] Moreover, a moratorium on repayment of business loans lasting six months was enacted, and subsequently extended until September of 2021. [45] In April, Portugal presented the Recovery and Resiliency Plan to the European commission, including €14 billion in grants and €2.7 billion in loans. [46] The European Commission approved Portugal's Recovery and Resilience plan, adopting a positive assessment of the plan. [46] As of May, the Portuguese government has announced a €6 billion plan to reactivate the tourism industry. [47]

Return to normal

On April 30, 2020, the Portuguese Ministers' Council approved a plan to start releasing the country from COVID-19 containment measures and cancel the State of Emergency. [17] The plan was divided in three stages, beginning respectively on 4 May, 24 May and 1 June 2020.

The first stage eased some restrictions, [48] such as:

Impact

Due to movement restrictions imposed by the state of emergency started in March 18 and the adoption of government guidelines on social distancing by the Portuguese people, otherwise highly populated streets and destinations in cities like Lisbon and Porto were completely empty. [49] [50]

LGBT+ youth

A study by the Faculdade de Psicologia e de Ciências da Educação da Universidade do Porto (FPCEUP) aimed at “assessing the psychological health and social support networks” of LGBT+ young people who live with their parental figures during the COVID-19 pandemic concluded, based on a survey of 632 young LGBT+ people, who most did not feel comfortable in their families during confinement. [51]

Of the people surveyed, 59% said they were uncomfortable in the family and three out of 10 felt “quite uncomfortable” living at home with parents during social confinement. [51]

In addition, 35% of young people felt “suffocated” because they were unable to express their identity within the family, whereas in the case of young people whose family was aware of their identity, 35% stated that they “deal badly or very badly" thereby. [51]

This study, with a longitudinal and intercultural character, also concluded that six out of 10 participants considered that the pandemic had “greatly” affected their lives. [51]

With regard to social support networks, half of the young people admitted to feeling isolated from their friends and 35% "extremely isolated" from their partners. [51]

“As for the present study, if for some young people the covid-19 pandemic had no impact on their social support networks, an important proportion felt quite isolated from their friends”, says FPCEUP. [51]

Vaccination

Vaccine donations to former colonies

Portugal announced that it would distribute 5% of its vaccine doses to a group of former colonies in Africa and to the nation of East Timor. Portugal is entitled to 35 million vaccine doses in 2021. Donating 5% of its stock means the country would give 1.75 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine to Angola, Mozambique, Cape Verde, Guinea Bissau, Equatorial Guinea, São Tomé and Príncipe, and East Timor. So far, they have committed to donate 1 million doses starting in July. [52]
