The Algarve Stadium can be used as a test centre now all sports events have been cancelled. The test facility is set up next to the Algarve stadium, between Faro and Loulé, allowing the tracking of cases referred by hospitals and doctors. The tests will then be analysed at the Regional Public Health Laboratory of the Algarve, located in front of the stadium, and the answer obtained “in eight hours”, the president of the Regional Health Administration (ARS) of the Algarve, Paulo Morgado explained in a press conference. “It is not a screening centre that is open to anyone who wants to do a test, it is to carry out tests on suspicious cases that have already been identified,” Paulo Morgado told Lusa, on the sidelines of the centre’s public presentation. That official stressed that it was only now that the structure was set up because “it is something that takes time to implement and because now is the time to do it”. Paulo Morgado stressed that the centre intends to “divert people with mild symptoms from the hospital” and that the helpline to the doctor – responsible for the “validation of suspected cases” – will continue to refer cases that have “greater severity and the need for a hospital stay”. He added that the Hospital de Faro “will not fail to do the tests”, but that it has the possibility of referring “whoever considers necessary” to the centre now installed.
