The PSD asked the Health Commission that the epidemiological meetings should be held every two weeks and that they be transmitted through Parliament's channel, according to a text published on the party's website today, July 13.
“To replace the progressive exhaustion of the information model at Infarmed meetings, the PSD parliamentarian group asked the Health Commission to deliberate on the holding, from the beginning of the next legislative session and every two weeks and indefinite duration, subordinate meetings to the theme of the epidemiological situation of covid-19 in Portugal ”, referred the social democratic party.
As for those who will be present at the sessions, the PSD asked that at the meetings there be “a representative of the Ministry of Health, another or other government representatives, if the Government so wishes, epidemiologists from public and private institutions, to be nominated on a proposal by the General of Health, other specialists that the Health Commission may decide to hear ”.
The proposal comes after the President of the Republic announced the end of Infarmed meetings on July 8, but also after declarations by the PSD president on this matter.
"I must confess that the last Infarmed meetings are beginning to have little use", stressed Rui Rio, to Porto Canal, on July 4th. The PSD leader also pointed out that “in the second part, when people are given the voice to ask questions, then there is still less use”.
