Miles de personas aún no quieren entender, y con su desprecio a las medidas sanitarias ponen en riesgo su vida y lo peor del caso la vida de los demás.

Given this, the police officers warned the young people that they should use the mouth mask or they would be penalized for not complying with the regulation, the agents even told them that they could provide a mouth cover if they did not have one. But the tourists refused to put on the mask,
And so, failing to comply with the instructions, the officers proceeded to arrest the young man and they took him before a civic judge.
“Thousands of people still do not want to understand, and with their contempt for sanitary measures, they put their lives at risk and the worst of the lives of others.
