                      Covid-19: Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa quarantines

                      President of the Republic suspends agenda for two weeks

                      2020-03-08

                      There are no signs of Covid-19 , but prevention measures have already entered Belém. The President of the Republic suspended the agenda for two weeks after it was determined that a class at the Felgueiras school, now closed due to a student infected with the virus , was Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa's official residence last Tuesday in a session attended by the Head of State.

                      In a statement the Presidency of the Portuguese Republic states that "last night, after a student from a school in Felgueiras was admitted, that school was closed. Today, in the afternoon, it was found that a class from that school had been in Belém, last Tuesday, as part of the initiative “Artists at the Palace of Belém”, in a session attended by the President of the Republic, having, in the end, taken pictures with students and teachers, without, however, having greeted them to one. "
