The Government has announced the new measures to ease lockdown across the country which will take place between 15 March and 3 May. In the southern Algarve, famous for its beaches and golf courses but now nearly deserted, the number of registered jobless spiked 74% to 33,458 last month from a year ago, making it the most affected region followed by Lisbon. The tourism industry, which was booming before the COVID-19 outbreak, played a crucial role in the recovery from the 2010 economic and debt crisis. The sector suffered its worst results since the mid-1980s last year. No crisis in recent history has hit Portugal’s economy as hard, with the country’s gross domestic product shrinking 7.6% last year, its biggest annual slump since 1936.
