Brazil: Rio postpones carnival over coronavirus

For the first time in over 100 years, the famous street parade has been suspended. The celebration was due to be held in February and officials have not yet set a new date.

Rio de Janeiro’s world famous carnival parade will not take place in February 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic, officials announced Thursday.

“We came to the conclusion that the event had to be postponed,” said Jorge Castanheira, the president of the group that organizes the annual parades, the Independent League of Rio de Janeiro Samba Schools (LIESA).

“We just can’t do it in February. The samba schools won’t have the time or financial and organizational resources to be ready,” he said.

Brazil currently has the second-highest coronavirus death rate in the world.
