Such tests are pointless unless taken at the airport immediately before travel.  What use is a test that shows you were not infected 48 hours before?

And there will be closing of all bars 2nd to 9th January for what good that will do. Everything where people may come into prolonged contact with one another should be closed down NOW and remain closed until this has passed. All social life banned in other words. Population to leave for home for work and to buy food only.

Or admit that we must learn to live with something that affects maybe 1% of the population at any time.

"And there will be closing of all bars 2nd to 9th January for what good that will do." Portugal News says clubs will be closed, not bars. Your point still remains of course, Tom. 

I think the compulsory use of hand sanitizer would be of more use, personally.

Quite right - the official Powerpoint pronouncement from the DGS in Portuguese, under the heading of 'a week without contact' mentions only discotheques being closed 2 - 9 January. (As well as all educational establishments.)

Something possibly lost in translation, although the media in Portuguese and English  ex-pat information websites did say 'bars and clubs'.

Foe example SIC news said 'Bares e discotecas vão encerrar entre 2 e 9 de janeiro para "contenção" de contactos e prevenção de contágios.'

Yours confusedly.

"Totally agree regarding hand sanitizer". Certain religions and personal beliefs forbid contact with alcohol. Is there a non-alcoholic sanitizer made available?"
