The restriction can be adopted to contain points of agglomeration in the capital of Rio de Janeiro; in all, 14,000 military police will monitor the access points to the city
The Municipality of Rio de Janeiro set up a major operation, in partnership with the state government, to try to avoid agglomerations and concentration of people during the Carnival. However, if the rules and limits are not respected, there is even the possibility of imposing a restriction on public transport in the city. Inspections have already started by monitoring social networks at parties and clandestine blocks. In all, a thousand men from the city hall take to the streets to hunt forbidden events. Blocs and samba schools cannot even concentrate, let alone parade in this Carnival of pandemic. Unauthorized parties are also prohibited in the city. To assist in this inspection, the city will have more than 800 cameras from the monitoring center during the party, which will be without revelry this year. THE Military police it also set up monitoring barriers at eight access points in the city to prevent the arrival of chartered buses and vans. There will be 14 thousand PM men working in the actions.
If disregard for the rules gets out of hand, the circulation of transport in the capital of Rio de Janeiro may be restricted, which already happened at the turn of the year. The secretary of Public Order of the municipality, Brenno Carnevale, said that the agent actions for possible agglomerations will be socio-educational and the possibilities of driving the offenders to police stations are not in the plans. “Our job is always to identify the organizer, who is sponsoring the event. People can be violated, for example, for not wearing a mask, for a health violation, there are responsibilities that can be attributed to these people ‘, he explained. To try to avoid agglomerations, the City of Rio de Janeiro has already canceled the optional point of Monday and only the state government maintained the holiday of next Tuesday, 16.
