leadBrazil rings in 2021 with nearly empty Copacabana beach
ATTENTION - ADDS quotes,color ///Rio de Janeiro,Jan 1,2021 (AFP) - Brazil rang in the New Year with Rio de Janeiro's famed Copacabana beach nearly empty the usual swarms of revelers kept away by police because of the pandemic and pot-banging protests against far-right President Jair Bolsonaro.Rio usually hosts one of the world's biggest New Year's Eve parties,but authorities canceled the festivities this year as Covid-19 racked the country."It was a complicated year,with this pandemic that has devastated the entire world," said Claudio Miranda,a 29-year-old salesman who was part of the relatively tiny crowd gathered on Copacabana."But we have to celebrate life our lives,our families' lives,everyone who's still here. Even if our hearts are aching for those who have left us," he told AFP.Covid-19 has killed nearly 195,000 people in Brazil,the second-highest death toll worldwide after the United States. The South American country of 212 million people is currently in the grips of a nasty second wave.The cancelation of the official festivities did not stop revelers across Rio from lighting up the city's iconic skyline with fireworks of their own at midnight.The loud booms blended with the sound of pot- and pan-clanging demonstrators shouting "Get out,Bolsonaro!" from their windows in Rio and Sao Paulo,Brazil's two biggest cities,in protest against a leader they accuse of disastrous handling of the pandemic.Bolsonaro,the politician dubbed the "Tropical Trump," has downplayed the gravity of the virus from the start and consistently defied health experts' advice on containing it.He ended the year on the same note,saying that face masks which global health officials call a vital tool in preventing transmission of the virus "don't protect against anything.""That's a fiction," he said in a New Year's Eve live address on Facebook."When are we going to get some people with the courage because I'm not a specialist on this,OK? to speak up and say that the protection provided by masks is a tiny percentage?"New Year's celebrations were largely muted affairs across Brazil,though huge crowds of mask-less revelers could be seen at beaches and clubs in some areas.Police broke up large parties in several cities,according to media reports.Football superstar Neymar meanwhile tried to douse a firestorm of controversy over reports he organized a week-long party for 500 revelers at his mansion outside Rio.The 28-year-old Paris Saint-Germain striker posted a video on Instagram of his preparations for what he called a "low-key little dinner at home" for friends and family on New Year's Eve."And it's not for 500 people,ok?" he added with a laugh.bur-jhb/acb

ATTENTION - CHANGES dateline,UPDATES with Biden,Brazil ///Rio de Janeiro,Jan 1,2021 (AFP) - From Sydney Harbour Bridge to the Acropolis to Copacabana beach,fireworks burst in skies above eerily deserted landmarks as the world ushered in the New Year with muted celebrations and said good riddance to a pandemic-ridden 2020.After a grinding year that has seen at least 1.7 million people die from Covid-19,fresh waves of infection have sparked renewed lockdowns and forced would-be revellers to extend their 2020 tradition of watching events from the sofa.The eagerly awaited first seconds of 2021 fell on the Pacific nations of Kiribati and Samoa from 1000 GMT. The uninhabited Howland and Baker Islands will be the last to tip over into the New Year.In New Zealand,which has won plaudits for its handling of the coronavirus,large crowds gathered in Auckland for a fireworks display.In Australia's largest city,Sydney,fireworks lit up the glittering harbor with a dazzling display,but few spectators watched in person."I think everybody is looking towards 2021 as a fresh beginning and a fresh start," Karen Roberts,among the lucky few who were allowed past checkpoints around the area,told AFP at a bar nestled under the Sydney Opera House.
- Curfews enforced -
Some Hong Kongers,despite restrictions,ventured out to mark the start of the year,gathering on the Victoria Harbour waterfront to take selfies.In Tokyo,where residents face the prospect of a state of emergency after infections touched new highs,people queued in face masks to offer New Year prayers.Wuhan in China,where the virus first appeared late last year,saw thousands gather to celebrate.Elsewhere,the mood was more downbeat.In Russia,President Vladimir Putin acknowledged in a New Year's address that a second wave of Covid-19 was battering the nation."The fight against it does not stop for a minute," he said.Italy where shocking images of makeshift morgues and exhausted medics awoke the world to the severity of the crisis is on a nationwide lockdown until January 7 with a 10 pm curfew in place.From France to Latvia and Brazil,police and in some cases military personnel were deployed to enforce curfews or bans on large gatherings.Paris and Athens both featured socially distanced gatherings,with a virtual concert and light show over Notre Dame in the French capital and fireworks over the Acropolis in Greece.In hard-hit London,74-year-old American singer-songwriter Patti Smith had been due to ring in the New Year with a tribute to National Health Service workers who have died from Covid-19,projected on the screen at Piccadilly Circus and streamed on YouTube.But due to alarm at rising infections rates,the big-screen projection was cancelled.A few dozen revellers did arrive in Parliament Square to watch Big Ben chime 11:00 pm midnight in Brussels marking the moment that Brexit finally became a reality,with Britain severing its turbulent half-century partnership with Europe.
- Social gathering -
A fireworks and laser show was held in Dubai at the Burj Khalifa,the world's tallest tower,where there has been a slew of new cases. Those watching were required to wear masks and register with identifying QR codes.On the banks of Lake Baikal in Siberia,where temperatures plummet to as low as -35 degrees Celsius (-31 Fahrenheit),around a dozen Russians emerged invigorated after a New Year's Eve ice dip.The swimmers,known in Russia as "walruses," ran several kilometers (miles) through a snowy forest in swimsuits and festive costumes before plunging into the world's largest freshwater lake."It's invigorating. It stings a little!" Andrei Bugai told AFP.German Chancellor Angela Merkel used her New Year greeting to warn the coronavirus crisis would extend into 2021 even if vaccines bring some hope,as police clashed with revellers near the Brandenburg gate in Berlin.As the final hours of 2020 ticked away in the Americas,authorities in New York City blocked public access to Times Square,where thousands usually gather to watch a crystal ball drop at midnight.A star-studded celebration was televised from the square with performances from the likes of Jennifer Lopez and Gloria Gaynor but its confetti will fall onto a largely deserted pavement.The US,the worst-hit country in the world,is nearing 20 million recorded infections and 345,000 deaths.But President-elect Joe Biden,who will take office in January,sounded a positive note."I'm more optimistic about America's chances than I've ever been," he said in a video interview on ABC's countdown program."America can do anything and I'm absolutely positively confident,confident we're gonna come back and come back even stronger than we were before."In Brazil where 195,000 people have died of Covid-19,the second-highest death toll Rio de Janeiro blocked the usual swarms of revelers from gathering on Copacabana beach.That did not stop revelers from lighting up the city's iconic skyline with amateur fireworks of their own,whose booms competed with the banging pots of critics protesting against far-right President Jair Bolsonaro,the leader dubbed the "Tropical Trump."bur-jhb/acb
