'Pinwheel walls' pay tribute to Sao Paulo's COVID victims

This memorial is a symbolic farewell to victims, made up of pinwheel walls in one of the city's main squares.

Organizers explained that the idea behind the memorial is to offer an opportunity for families to say goodbye to their loved, with many funerals not possible in the pandemic.

Local samba school Vai-Vai has contributed 38,000 pinwheels to this memorial in Franklin Roosevelt square.

The pandemic has killed nearly 600,000 Brazilians, the world's second-deadliest outbreak outside the United States..
