The Battle - Portugal Against Covid-19 - PT Version

COVID-19: the name that leaves no one indifferent. More than 27 million people are infected, and more than 900,000 deaths worldwide. Portugal registered numbers much lower than those of its neighboring countries Spain, France and Italy. The documentary features exclusive interviews with health professionals in the Intensive Care Units of several hospitals, who tell in the first person how it has been dealing with this pandemic, how we got these numbers, their daily lives, what they did and what were forced to abdicate. It also has important testimonies from Firefighters, Journalists, among other professions that can never stop, which demonstrate the complexity of this struggle. We can also witness the emotions that the elderly in confined Homes felt when they were able to see their family members for the first time in 2 months, in very different conditions than usual. A unique documentary made in Portugal, during the time of the State of Emergency
