The Impact of Coronavirus Portuguese Consumption habits

We have released new data on how Coronavirus has impacted Portuguese’ consumption habits over the the last weeks. The index reveals a natural decrease in MULTIBANCO Network transactions since the first case of Coronavirus COVID-19 was reported in Portugal.

But while transaction frequency lowered and felt near half its regular average, the global value of purchases and withdrawals has increased by 21% and 25% respectively.
