Portugal announced restrictions for citizens wanting to travel abroad as it tries to contain the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.

The government will limit departures by air and land, with some exceptions, during the next 15 days, Home Affairs Minister Eduardo Cabrita said in parliament on Thursday. Some controls will be reintroduced along the land border with Spain, the government said in an emailed statement.
