Portugal's Health Minister Marta Temido has resigned from her post following the death of a pregnant Indian tourist

Lisbon: Portugal’s Health Minister Marta Temido quits on Tuesday after the widespread criticism of her decision to temporarily close emergency obstetric services and the death of an Indian pregnant woman on Saturday after being transferred on Tuesday from Hospital de Santa Maria to Hospital Sao Francisco Xavier, due to a lack of vacancies in the neonatology service.

Ms Temido in a sentence said that she “no longer has the conditions” to exercise the position, which the prime minister accepted, Portugal’s National Public broadcaster, RTP News reported.

Her resignation was announced hours after the news of the death of a pregnant woman in Lisbon. During the trip, there was a cardiorespiratory arrest, and resuscitation work was carried out on the transport, reported RTP News.
