Brazil: Sao Paulo school van drivers demand governmental help amid coronavirus pandemic

School van drivers occupied Sao Paulo’s Paulista Avenue on Friday demanding help from the government during the coronavirus pandemic. People also called on banks to lower interest rates during the coronavirus lockdown. Footage shows vans parked in a line, with some of them having signs and writings requesting government assistance, with police also seen watching the demonstration. «Banks are... Еще charging high taxes for the financing of our vans, and nobody is helping us. We were the first sector to stop and probably the last one to come back to work. We want safety for our children but we need a special line of credit and help so we don't go bankrupt,» explained event organiser, Edmilson Andrade. According to reports, the city's lockdown will be extended beyond May 10, the date until when it was initially imposed. With 91,589 coronavirus cases, and over 6,000 deaths, Brazil remains the hardest-hit country in South America, according to data compiled by John Hopkins University.
