According Lisbon council, the municipal Covid-19 testing plan “is no longer limited to two monthly tests per resident in the city of Lisbon and now offers an unlimited number of tests, regardless of whether or not you are a resident” in the capital.
Through the municipal covid-19 testing plan, the number of tests carried out at pharmacies and mobile units organised by the City Council and the Red Cross “more than doubled in the last week, going from a daily average of 1,000 tests to more than 3,500 tests/day, on 17 and 18 June”.
“Since March 31, when the programme began, more than 60,000 free tests have been carried out in pharmacies for Lisbon residents”.
In this context, the network of mobile testing points, which is now present in 17 locations, will be reinforced as of this week.
According to the municipality, teams from Lisbon's municipal civil protection services will be present from today in the main commercial areas to raise awareness in local businesses about the importance of testing employees.
