At a time when Portugal has had new highs of cases of infection with the new coronavirus, the director general of Health, Graça Freitas, was asked about the presence of the public in the Formula 1 and MotoGP Grand Prix, and admitted that this issue is to be reviewed.
“DGS is reviewing its programming in terms of the public at sporting events due to the epidemiology in each region of the country, which, as you know, is not uniform,” Graça Freitas told reporters.
“It is being considered, depending on the area of the country, whether or not there will be, as well as the reduction that will have to exist,” said the official, pointing out: “We are being cautious, we are seeing the epidemiological situation.”
The Formula 1 Grand Prix takes place between 23 and 25 October, at the Autódromo Internacional do Algarve, in Portimão.
The MotoGP Grand Prix takes place between 20 and 22 November.
