The fact remains that tear gas, spreading over all sides among residential buildings of Tijuca, brought about health problems affecting the breath and eyes of people of all age brackets, chiefly sick elderly ones who, inside their apartments or houses, had burning in their eyes and inhaled tear gas. This regrettable fact has left people in panic. At the same time, those who live in higher floors were also harmed in the same way. Besides, a big smell of power also got things worse for the dwellers in the neighborhood of Maracanã Stadium.
NOTE: I have made a correction now of the right number of soldiers who were at the Maracanã Stadium to defend it and the soccer rooters who attended the match.

Nota do Colunista: Retificamos, com mais precisão, o contingente de militares que defendiam o Estádio do Maracanã.
