"Media images of ambulances with coronavirus patients queuing outside hospitals in Lisbon and elsewhere as they waited for beds to vacate have raised fears the health system is close to reach its limit." More info: https://t.co/lebr4JXXH2

In Porto, the country's second biggest city, the Sao Joao hospital is already receiving "various" patients from Lisbon as hospitals in the capital struggle to cope (Source: hospital spokesperson) 7/7

Three major hospitals in Lisbon only had 3 intensive care beds left for coronavirus patients on Saturday morning. Images on Friday showed more than 10 ambulances with coronavirus patients queuing for hours as they waited for beds to vacate at a hospital in Torres Vedras 6/7

There are currently 622 people in ICUs and the Portuguese Association of Hospital Administrators said the number of coronavirus patients needing hospitalisation was likely to dramatically increase over the next week (Source: DGS) 5/7

The health system, which prior to the pandemic had the lowest number of critical care beds per 100,000 inhabitants in Europe, can currently accommodate a maximum of 672 COVID-19 patients in ICUs (Source: Health Ministry) 4/7

The number of infections per 100,000 people measured over the past 14 days is 901, more than double that in hard-hit Italy and France. (Source: European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control) 3/7

A new lockdown came into force in Portugal, a nation of just over 10 million people, on Friday. On the same day, authorities reported a record 159 COVID-19 deaths and cases reached their second-highest level since the start of the pandemic at 10,663 (Source: DGS) 2/7

A friend from Porto sends me this picture of a newly opened, topically-named bakery called PÃODEMIA (play on words combining "pão" — the Portuguese word for bread — with "pandemia" — pandemic). 

I, for one, yearn for a global crisis centered on pastéis de nata and bolos. https://t.co/3t240Mo4tZ

Lisbon’s cafes, restaurants and shops opened doors one last time this morning before the second lockdown comes into force tomorrow.

Many feel desperate, without knowing if they will be able to make ends meet for much longer.
