Storyline


The government and people of Brazilian city of Rio de Janeiro and other cities have taken stricter measures to contain the spread of COVID-19 pandemic.

The measures included shutting public, entertainment and service-related premises and urging people to observe social distancing and shelter-in-place orders.

The Rio government on Wednesday called on residents to stay home and the city's mayor announced the government will offer free food to a million poverty-stricken families during this period.

This does not apply to supermarkets and drug stores, which are encouraged to extend business hours in response to the call by the government.

Some drug stores have increased the number of deliverymen to help the people with disabilities.

"The restrictions are good for the people. But many still have to pay their daily expenses. The current pandemic is likely to put many out of work," said a bartender.

"I’m very afraid, very afraid. All the shops have closed and so have restaurants," said a waitress of a restaurant.

To address negative impact on the economy, 79 percent of Brazilians have cut their expenses.

This week, the country's parliament has proposed to cut wages of its members and civil servants.
