Folha de S. Paulo, April 18, 2016

"Impeachment!" reads the front page of leading Brazilian daily Folha de S. Paulo on Monday, a day after Brazil's lower house of Parliament voted in favor of starting impeachment proceedings against President Dilma Rousseff.

The embattled president faces accusations that she manipulated budget figures to secure her reelection in late 2014. A total of 367 deputies — some of them pictured cheering on the daily's front page — voted for impeachment, while 137 voted against.

Rousseff, who lost a last-minute attempt to halt the vote, "won't stop the fight," attorney general José Eduardo Cardozo commented. "If anybody thinks she's going to bow, they're wrong," Folha de S. Paulo quotes him as saying.

The case now moves on to the Senate, where a vote is expected to take place next month.

Though the full impact of the Omicron variant must still be determined by ongoing scientific studies, the world was once again joined in a collective moment of anxiety and uncertainty a full two years after the first mentions of a novel coronavirus discovered in China began to appear in the world's news outlets.
