President announces end of state of emergency

Published on 28th April 2020

The President of the Republic announced on 28 April that the state of emergency will end at midnight on 2 May and that Portugal will enter an opening phase in small steps.

“The state of emergency will cease to be in force after this second renewal on the 2nd at midnight. It is hoped that it will not be necessary in the future to resort to the state of emergency again. If necessary, this will be considered,” said Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa.

According to the head of state, who was speaking to journalists at Infarmed in Lisbon, Portugal will now enter a “third phase” of combating the spread of covid-19, which “remains in control of the situation”, but with “a recovery or an opening - any of the terms may apply - with small steps”
