RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - The São Paulo government announced Wednesday, June 23, that it would extend pandemic control restrictions now in effect until July 15. The state is currently in a so-called "transition phase" of the São Paulo plan.
The decision was made following an increase in the number of cases, hospitalizations, and deaths from Covid-19, according to Governor João Doria (PSDB). The recommendation was made by the state government's Covid-19 Contingency Center.
The group's coordinator, Paulo Menezes, said the state had an 8% increase in the number of cases per 100 . . .
