TV Globo has stopped the recording of the TV series “Travesia” due to the health problem of one of the actresses. It is the first time a broadcaster has been suspended from one of its professions, but has been prosecuted for firing an employee. This information has been taken from TV News website.
Drica morais tested positive for Covid-19 in the new wave of disease. While translating the character of Nubia, she was instrumental in the continuation of the work and hence the scenes in which she participated were shelved. In addition, Rafael Lusso, who played Gil, also contracted the infection and dropped out of the series.
Another New Wave influenced act for the station, “Todas as Flores”. Regina Casse, Cassio Gabos Mendez, Nicolas Prates, Leonardo Lima Carvalho and Fabio Asuncao have been infected with the virus.
Following the spike in Covid-19 cases, Globo issued an internal statement recommending a return to the use of masks. Broadcasters also maintained equipment hygiene protocols, for example. Actors, producers, make-up artists and directors always wear safety gear, except when actors take it off for recording.
