police interrupts party with more than 40 people in SP

An operation by the Civil Police and Procon in São Paulo interrupted a clandestine party with more than 40 people in a bar in Interlagos, south of the capital. The event took place at dawn on Thursday (8/4), in a closed location.

Despite the 4.9% drop in hospitalizations due to Covid-19, the state still faces crowded hospitals and high demand for ICU beds due to the new coronavirus.

Daily, the state receives 1,500 new requests for hospitalizations in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). At least 25 hospitals have no vacancies.

Ten of the 46 people apprehended on the spot worked at the establishment and were taken to the police station. Half of the people present at the party did not wear a protective mask, a basic item in the fight against Covid-19.

The police also seized sound equipment, computers and card machines.

On Tuesday (6/4), São Paulo beat another record of deaths in 24 hours: 1,389 lives were lost due to Covid-19. The previous number had been 1,209 deaths, registered on March 30.
