In comparison with other European countries such as the UK, France, and its neighbor Spain, Portugal has fared reasonably well during the Coronavirus pandemic.

This makes the decision of its oldest ally, Britain, to set a quarantine stipulation for visitors to the country, except for the islands of Madeira and the Azores, all the more mystifying.

Portugal's many fine beaches are open to the public and apps such as Sandspace and Infopraia provide detailed, real-time information on how crowded the country's beaches actually are at any given time.

If you want to find the latest information on the Covid-19 situation in Portugal, the best place to head for is the Serviço Nacional de Saúde website (sns.gov.pt). It has daily reports on the total number of Covid-19 suspected cases, confirmed cases, the number of recovered cases, plus deaths in all of Portugal's regions and main towns.

The stats are presented by region and by city. Lisbon, the capital, is the hardest hit, followed by the north, centered on Portugal's second-largest city, Porto.

In particular, the densely populated Amadora district in Lisbon has recorded many cases as well as nearby Sintra. The Algarve and Alentejo are the least affected regions.
