On Monday, a group of sex workers from the Association of Prostitutes of Mins Gerais took over a street full of shuttered hotels where they once worked, in pre-pandemic times. Now they have been forced out onto the street to solicit for clients, still legally, but in a much less secure environment, prostitutes reveal.

'We need to get vaccinated'.

The governor joined Revere Mayor Brian Arrigo and East Boston Neighborhood Health Center President Manny Lopes to tour the vaccination site at the Oceanside Events Center in Revere, which has been designated as one of the 20 hardest hit communities in the state and prioritized for mobile vaccination units through the state's partnership with FEMA.

"We are part of the priority group because we deal with various types of people and our lives are at risk", said one of the protesting sex workers, Lucimara Costa.

The Brazilian government has prioritised health workers, teachers, the elderly, indigenous people and people with underlying health conditions for the first round of vaccinations.

It hopes to vaccinate these priority groups, some 77million people, in the first half of 2021, but experts say the process may drag into September due to a shortage of doses.

New York State reached universal vaccine eligibility on Tuesday, allowing New Yorkers 16-years-old and older to sign up to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

Meanwhile, deaths have declined mostly steadily since a peak of 4,400 in January.
