  • Some beaches in California full as US approaches 1 million coronavirus cases

    Newport Beach, Apr 26 (EFE).- Several California beaches seemed to be overflowing on Sunday after local authorities lifted some of the quarantine restrictions, although recommendations that people remain in home confinement are still in force in the state and elsewhere in the US, where the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread and the number of confirmed cases is approaching 1 million.The beaches in Orange County, in Southern California, were filled with thousands of bathers, who flocked to the sand and surf starting on Friday during the current heat wave after local officials lifted various restrictions.According to the media, more than 40,000 people turned out on Saturday at certain beaches, including the one at Newport, and the crowd could be bigger on Sunday.At the beginning of this past week, the Orange County commissioners voted to keep some beaches and open-air areas open, although local parking lots will remain closed for the time being.In contrast, beaches in Los Angeles County, including the famous Santa Monica and Venice beaches, remain vacant at the insistence of local authorities who are not relaxing the quarantine measures yet and are keeping them closed to the public.
