Portugal: The Battle against Covid-19
A look back at a country in crisis
Portugal registered numbers of deaths and infections much lower than those of its neighbouring countries Spain, France and Italy. This documentary takes a look at Portugal's response to the pandemic, and talks to Intensive Care Unit doctors, firefighters, business-owners and photojournalists, demonstrating the complexity of this struggle. We can also witness the emotions that the elderly in confined Homes felt when they were able to see their family members for the first time in 2 months, in very different conditions than usual. A unique documentary made in Portugal, during the time of the State of Emergency.
