The Algarve's Jorge Botelho, Secretary of State for Decentralization and Local Administration, is the new regional coordinator for the fight against Covid-19, thus succeeding José Apolinário, who last week left the Government.

Botelho will already participate this morning in the meeting of the District Civil Protection Commission, which will take place via VTC.

Jorge Botelho was president of the Tavira City Council and president of the Algarve Intermunicipal Community (AMAL), until being appointed to the current government functions by Prime Minister António Costa.

Interestingly, José Apolinário, that the precedes in regional coordination, left the Secretary of State for Fisheries to become Candidate for the presidency of the Regional Coordination and Development Commission (CCDR) of the Algarve, in the first indirect elections for this position, which result from the recent legislation that was, in large part, conceived by Secretary of State Jorge Botelho.
