“We are suffering a lot and we are still suffering from the impact of the house problem in Minde, because we have a large number of users in the establishment and also professionals. We have professionals from the parish of São Bento, Mira de Aire and Alvados e Alcaria, ”said Jorge Vala.
The absence of a health delegate in the municipality was highlighted by the mayor of Porto de Mós, who admits that currently the monitoring and surveillance of suspected cases of Covid-19 are much lower than those recorded during the first wave .
This situation “makes us very concerned,” he said. “I recognize the tireless work of public health professionals in Leiria [que atualmente prestam apoio ao concelho] and do their best.
