The New York Times:
The Carnival Parade Is Canceled, And Rio Is Reeling


For more than a century, Rio de Janeiro’s carnival has been an irrepressible force, unstoppable by wars, disease, labor strikes or political repression. Raucous celebrations took over city streets despite the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic, during both World Wars and through Brazil’s military dictatorship. Glitter flew, hips swayed and drummers pounded in 2008, despite a dengue outbreak that sickened more than 200,000 in the state. … But now, amid the pandemic, the official carnival parade has been suspended, indefinitely. Rio is reeling. (Andreoni and Londono, 9/30)
