Whoa! Here I am writing about the Covid crazy stuff, just like the real Right-wing fringe journalists, me being even more on the fringe, if I had a fringe, but am bald. I liked this one so much that I had to post it … a man was swimming underwater wearing a Covid face mask! That sounds grand! If I ever have a shower, I too will wear a face mask, just to get it soaking wet and useless. Say, does anyone know the name of that sport where the ladies have their heads under water, legs above, and make clever leg moves? Yes, synchronised swimming! That is what I want to do wearing my Covid mask, as I drown, Covid-contented.
“Spain has passed a new law forcing people to wear face masks everywhere outside and even while swimming in the sea.
The legislation, which came into effect on Wednesday, mandates face coverings for children as young as six, with refusniks facing fines of €100 euros.
The only exemption to the rule is adults playing sports outside, but people tanning outside or swimming in a pool or the ocean are still required to cover up.
“This will apply to people who are sunbathing or even swimming in the sea,” confirms the London Evening Standard.
The utter stupidity and real danger of having to wear a face mask while swimming in the sea goes without saying.
Having to wear a face covering while placing yourself in a situation where you have a heightened risk of encountering breathing difficulties is totally insane.
Thankfully, there has been a huge backlash to the law, which has “spread dismay through Spain’s tourism industry,” according to the London Times."
Apparently the Spanish authorities backed down, which is sad. Still I expect masks to be worn in bull fights, especially by the bulls.
