PORTUGAL’S HEALTH MINISTER RESIGNS OVER PREGNANT TOURIST’S DEATH.

Portugal’s Health Minister, Dr Marta Temido has resigned  hours after reports emerged that a pregnant tourist had died after being turned away from a full maternity ward.

Reports say, the thirty-four year old Indian woman reportedly suffered a cardiac arrest while being transferred between Lisbon Hospitals.

 It follows a string of incidents that critics blame on a staffing crisis across Portuguese natal Units.

According to reports, Dr Marta Temido had been the health Minister since 2018, and is credited with steering Portugal through Covid.

But Portugal’s Prime Minister, Antonio Costa said the woman’s death was the last straw that led to Dr Temido’s resignation after realizing she no longer had the conditions to remain in Office.
