Coronavirus, California goes to the beach. So swimmers and surfers defy bans


It’s Saturday and it’s a beautiful sunny day, the governor of California Gavin Newsom has just ordered the 40 million citizens to stay in their homes to avoid the spread of the coronavirus but the temptation is too strong and people take the bicycle, the surf , the towel, the tanning cream and crowd the beaches. Photos of Americans disrespectful of the rules have gone around the world as he tells us the CNN.

On social media

The news could not escape social media. On the weekend, twitter, facebook and instagram were teeming with photos with groups of people on the street regardless of the danger of the infection. A behavior that forced the mayor of Los Angeles Eric Garcetti to ban sports and recreational activities in all the parks of the city and to close the parking lots in front of the beaches: «This weekend we saw too many people crowding the beaches, the cycle paths or by running and the parks – he wrote Sunday evening in a tweet -. This is a serious matter. Stay home and save lives. ”

In Malibu

The same decision was made by the mayor of Malibù and that of Long Beach who also closed the areas for dogs, playgrounds, skating rinks, tennis, basketball and volleyball courts.
