Lusa - Business News - Cabo Verde: New restrictions are 'devastating' but necessary - vice-PM




Praia, Aug. 13,2020 (Lusa) - Cabo Verde's deputy prime minister on Thursday said that the restrictive measures to contain Covid-19 that came into force this week are devastating for the economy in the short term, but a "sacrifice" not to "mortgage" the future.

In a message posted on his official Facebook page, Olavo Correia stressed that Cabo Verde is in a phase of the outbreak that requires some harsh measures, alluding to the recent government decision to extend the state of calamity on the islands of Santiago and Sal.

"As the economy is confined, even if only nationally, we will have devastating consequences for our economy soon. It is worth the sacrifice, to suffer two to three weeks to gain the future, than to mortgage the future," said the deputy prime minister, recognising that there are people who are suffering and companies in pre-bankruptcy.

According to Olavo Correia, the restrictive measures, which represent a step backwards in the easing of lockdown that began in June after two months of a state of emergency, were taken following medical guidelines, from public health authorities.

This position comes just hours after Cape Verdean president, Jorge Carlos Fonseca, said that he had alerted the government to doubts in the resolution extending the state of calamity on the islands of Santiago and Sal, reinforcing preventive measures to Covid-19, calling for compliance with the constitution.

About the resolution in question, which extended the restrictions on those two islands, following active outbreaks of disease transmission in the archipelago, the head of state stressed that the decisions adopted by the government are not susceptible to scrutiny by the president, through promulgation, political veto or preventive monitoring of constitutionality.

The new measures restricting the operation of economic activities to contain the spread of the disease on the islands of Santiago and Sal came into force at midnight on Monday, with emphasis on the mandatory use of masks for all persons who circulate or remain in public, open or closed, including on public roads.

One of the most controversial and publicly contested measures in recent days is the ban on parties and gatherings, even in private residences, with the bathing on the island of Sal being closed, except for the period from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m.

"I do not doubt that the adoption of such measures by the government has the sole and exclusive intention of rapidly changing certain behaviours of citizens that may be hindering the containment of the spread of Covid-19 disease (...) with all the negative consequences that this entails, namely the saturation of health services and the progressive normalisation of economic and social activities," said Jorge Carlos Fonseca in his message released on Thursday.

In the resolution in question, the government justified the new measures with the epidemiological situation of the country - 3,000 cases of Covid-19 confirmed since 19 March and 33 deaths - which showed a stable trend, after a period of gradual increase in the number of contagions, which followed the period of the progressive lifting of restrictions since June.

Facilities remain closed and cultural, recreational, sporting, leisure and entertainment activities are prohibited in establishments or places of entertainment, namely discos and dance halls or places where parties are held.

Since Monday, all alcoholic drinks establishments, namely bars, are closed on these two islands, and to reopen they will have to present a declaration of sanitary conformity, issued by the inspection authorities.

Commercial establishments, except for pharmacies and bakeries, will have to suspend attendance to the public at 6.30 p.m., with the closure of all activities at 7 p.m.

The Covid-19 pandemic has claimed more than 749,000 lives and infected more than 20.6 million people in 196 countries and territories, according to a report by the French agency AFP.
