The two tourists decided to go on vacation despite the indication to stay in social isolation for 14 days after their son was admitted to Covid-19 in Copenhagen, Denmark. The couple decided to break the quarantine after a week to spend a few days in Madeira, where they arrived this Sunday.
What they did not know is that the public health authorities in Denmark were in contact with the Portuguese authorities. The Directorate-General for Health received the information and passed it on to Madeira. The result is that, at the moment, the two tourists are isolated in a hotel room in Funchal.
According to the statement issued by IASAUDE, the regional equivalent of the Directorate-General for Health, the hotel is aware of the situation. So far the two tourists have not tried to stick to the measure. It is known that they are well, have no symptoms, despite the risk of contact with a patient infected with coronavirus.
