Salvador: curfew announcement was made by Governor Rui Costa at another meeting with members of the Union of municipalities in Bahia
With the increase in bed occupation of ICU in the State of Bahia (currently with 74% capacity), the state governor Rui Costa (PT) decreed a curfew as of Friday (19) in 343 of the 417 municipalities in Bahia, including the capital savior. The measure will be valid for seven days, between 10 pm and 5 am.
"The objective is to avoid those agglomerations at dawn that generate a lot of contamination because they are usually associated with alcoholic beverages", declared the governor, who also commented that the repeal or expansion of the measure will depend on the number of active cases in the coming days.
According to the decree published this Wednesday (17), travel to hospitals and pharmacies or situations where urgency is proven will be tolerated. The curfew restrictions do not apply to servers, employees and collaborators who work in health and safety units, public or private. In case of non-compliance with the curfew in Salvador, the police may fine people and commercial establishments for crimes against health and public order.
“If over these seven days the situation gets worse, we can extend the curfew. Instead of 10pm, it could be 8pm, it could be 6pm. If the situation deteriorates very quickly, then we will go to more drastic measures, as Germany adopted, which is the closing of everything, which became known as a lockdown”, said Rui Costa. The number of active cases of Covid-19 in the state of Bahia exceeds 15,000 and over 10,000 people have died from the disease so far.
The complete list of cities that will have a curfew from this Friday (19) will be published in the Official State Gazette this Wednesday (17). Between 10 pm and 5 am, the movement of people on the streets will be restricted and the operation of non-essential services will be prohibited. #Bahia pic.twitter.com/FHIQoq1C9J
