At the political level, the fight against COVID-19 had serious effects. In March 2020, all political parties agreed to ask President Fransisco ‘Lu-Olo’ Guterres to declare a state of emergency, suspending some political rights and constitutional guarantees. The harsh move was deemed necessary to stage the first measures of confinement and prevent the virus from entering the country.
