Pregnant tourist dies, Portugal health minister resigns

Portugal’s Health Minister Marta Temido has resigned over the death of a pregnant Indian tourist.

According to the report of the country’s media RTP News, Temido will no longer hold the position of Minister of Health. He announced his resignation from this post. The Prime Minister has already accepted his resignation.

Temido resigned five hours after hearing the news of the Indian woman’s death in Lisbon. The woman was taken from the Hospital de Santa Maria to the Hospital São Francisco Javier on Tuesday. Then he suffered a heart attack.

The woman gave birth to a baby weighing 722 grams through an emergency caesarean section. The child needed emergency care. The woman died but the baby was transferred to the Neonatal Care Unit.

Temido has been credited with managing the country’s vaccine program during the Corona virus. But it came under fire for its decision to temporarily close emergency maternity services due to a shortage of doctors.

Temido took over as Health Minister in 2018.
