Nearly two months into 7 สูตรเด็ดสล็อตออนไลน์ ที่ดีที่สุดในปี 2021! a lockdown imposed in mid-January to tackle what was then
the world's worst coronavirus surge, Portugal's government announced on Thursday (Mar 11) it would start to gradually
ease its strict rules from next week.

 

"We can open up in a safe way but it has to be a prudent, gradual opening, bit by bit ... we don't want to increase the risk,
" Prime Minister Antonio Costa told a news conference. "We have to be cautious."

 

Kindergartens, pre-schools and primary schools will reopen on Monday, as well as hair salons, libraries and bookshops,
Costa said, adding that cafes' terraces, museums, and small stores will open doors on Apr 5.

 

High school and university students will be able to return to school on Apr 19, when cinemas, theatres and shopping malls
will also reopen. Outdoor events will be allowed under capacity rules.

 

Restaurants can reopen on Apr 19 too but must close earlier. From May 3, restaurants can reopen with no time restrictions
and large indoor and outdoor events can be held following capacity rules yet to be defined, Costa said, warning he will
not be afraid to take a step back if the situation worsens again.

 

The measures to ease the lockdown will be re-evaluated every 15 days, Costa said.

 

In January, the pandemic brought the country's fragile health service to its knees but has significantly improved since then,
with daily figures dropping sharply.

 

Portugal, a nation of just over 10 million, reported 627 new cases and 18 deaths on Thursday, bringing the total to 812,575
and 16,635 respectively
