Rio de Janeiro’s beaches fill up as COVID restrictions ease

The death toll in Brazil is approaching 150,000.
Despite rising infection rates, Rio de Janeiro’s mayor is easing restrictions, by opening cinemas, theatres and schools.
Many people are ignoring the regulations that are still in place and have crowded public spaces, seeking work and play.

    Africa here we have serious congestio and basically zero social distancing in towns yet our death rates are very low , we have a high population of mostly fit youth and the viruses and diseases our immune systems are exposed to and used to dealing with makes covid 19 a piece of cake for a our bodies to handle hence our low death rate months despite experts predicting there would be hundreds of thousands of dead and dying folks here by now

    I'm sorry, but GOD promised "Israel" to the jewish people (In the Bible & Torah) and "Al-Aqsa Mosque" (Islam) is a place in heaven and not in Jerusalem! Jerusalem don't mentioned even once in the book of Islam (The Quran) Jerusalem belongs to the jews and the "third temple" should be build in the "temple mount" in Jerusalem, Israel…..

    Some countries are simply incapable of controlling this. The only upside is that the state of Sao Paulo is getting the Chinese vaccine late in December. There's just no way a country this chaotic could ever suppress this virus. Especially not with such a leader who is essentially a Trump wannabe.
