Portugal - Country Profile on the European Semester and COVID-19 crisis

There are no proposed or implemented measures related to the long-term effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Numerous families have had to face a severe reduction in their income.

During the schools lockdown there were several negative developments: children were deprived of social contacts with their peers; parents had to balance working from home with managing online school activities for their children; many children had no means to follow online activities,
as they did not have access to computers and/or the internet; parents can face serious difficulties in helping their children with school activities as they might not have a sufficient educational background.

Read the country profile and the full report.
