    Lisbon, Jul 2 (EFE) .- (Camera: Andrea Caballero de Mingo) A night-time curfew in Portugal’s main cities including Lisbon and Porto came into effect Friday after a surge in coronavirus cases driven by the Delta variant across the country.FOOTAGE OF LISBON CITY. SOUNDBITES OF INHABITANTS.TRANSLATIONS:1.- Raquel Clemente, 22-year-old student:I think it is very bad for business and mainly for the country's economy and I do not understand very well, to be honest, the logic because if you can go out during the week until later, why on the weekend you can't. It is justified because people are more at home, but for me it doesn't make much sense.2.- Andressa, clerk at the Força Portugal store, store of the Portuguese National Team:I think it is a way of assuring the population that it is important that people take care of themselves at this time but I accredit that it obviously affects commerce and business in general because they have shorter hours. It is complicated, it is necessary, but it is delicate to trade.3.- Carlos Vaz, manager of Tabacaria Continental:It will affect the level of travel, quality and quantity of people, circulation is more reduced and greatly affects tourism and all economic activities that make a living from tourism.4.- Ana Paula, manager of the Al Dante restaurant:They are going to affect all tourism a lot. Because it is so. You cannot enter, you cannot leave and people are already very tired of this situation because people do not know that this goes further, it is very complicated.
