Portugal to scrap nearly all restrictions from October

Portuguese Prime Minister Antonio Costa announced on Thursday the government would lift most of the remaining coronavirus-related restrictions from October 1.

"As most of the restrictions imposed by law disappear, we are going to enter a phase that is based on the responsibility of everyone. We must not forget that the pandemic is not over," Costa told reporters at a press briefing.

With Portugal inoculating over 83% of its population, Costa noted that restaurants and cultural venues would be allowed to have a maximum number of visitors while nightclubs and bars would reopen after a year and a half.
