Last week, during the reopening of Campo de Santana, at the Center, Mayor Eduardo Paes, who even announced he would open entertainment venues on the waterfront last weekend, said there would be an awareness campaign on the use of these spaces. and the beach. The decree, however, does not contain details about this campaign.
– There is a very special situation on the beach. We want to give more guidance on the beach so that people (due to the risk of agglomerations) use the space. You have to be more careful, run a campaign, warn – the mayor said at the time.
Last Monday, the city of Rio recorded 193 new cases of coronavirus and one death caused by the disease.

The southern zone has a high risk of pollution
Also last Friday, when launching a new City Hall panel that showed 18 of the city’s 33 administrative regions with a high risk of Covid-19 pollution, with another 15 classified at moderate level and none low-risk, Paes referred to the South Zone when citing areas that could have more severe restrictive measures:
– I mean the whole Southern Zone, Barra da Tijuca, the Santa Cruz region, the Grande Bangu region, Ricardo, Anchieta, Pavuna and other regions that could be here in front of me. If not taken care of properly, there is a real chance that it will move to a very high level. And if it goes to a very high level, we will have very firm limits – he said.
The publication of the next bulletin on hazards by city regions will take place next Friday (15).
