Non-essential businesses close in Sao Paulo amid spike in Covid-19 cases


São Paulo, Mar 6 (EFE), (Camera: Wallace Carvalho).- All non-essential shops and businesses in Sao Paulo, Brazil's richest and most populous state, closed down on Saturday for the next few weeks due to a serious spike in cases and deaths from Covid-19, which have pushed the healthcare system to the verge of collapsing.With 46 million inhabitants, the country's financial engine was the first state to impose more severe measures of lockdown and social isolation a year ago and, with Governor Joao Doria at its head, led the implementation of the first vaccine. But despite those efforts, the state remains the most affected in absolute terms.FOOTAGE OF CLOSED BUSINESSES IN SAO PAULO
