We are now re-entering what is being called the new normal. What does this mean for us as human beings and as global citizens? Does our fundamental value of freedom still exist? How are governments dealing with this situation and will Portugal continue to set the example?
I have worked in this industry for over 17 years and, despite facing challenges in several countries, I do not recall a situation like the one we are currently experiencing. I believe there is a global consensus on this matter and the analogy used by some media comparing the virus to a ‘World War III’ isn’t entirely an exaggeration. The comparison is heavy, but the number of total deaths is comparable to casualties of war. Most economists agree that the Great Depression was nothing in comparison to where we are now and what lies in our immediate economic future.
