On the outskirts of Lisbon, in Seixal, Jamaica is an extremely deprived neighbourhood of unfinished buildings, inhabited by migrants from Africa or African descendants from Angola, São Tomé and Principe and Guinea Bissau. The pandemic has been deepening the poverty and the feeling of isolation of this community, segregated and stigmatised for years. The inhabitants have mostly non-qualified jobs, which makes their economic situation even much more fragile during the pandemic, and given their housing conditions they are much more exposed to the COVID-19 health crisis.
