RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - After São Paulo State set a record for covid-19 hospitalizations, governor João Doria (PSDB) on Wednesday announced restrictions on movement between 11 PM and 5 AM in all São Paulo municipalities starting next Friday, February 26th.
The measure, effective between February 26th and March 14th, is a further attempt to "reduce crowds and gatherings that may occur mainly at night," explained Paulo Menezes, coordinator of the Covid-19 Contingency Center, at a press conference alongside the governor. Illegal gatherings, already banned, are the main target of the measure, which should not punish . . .
