Miami Beach was overflowing with people this weekend.

That’s what tourists brought to Miami Beach, the city’s mayor, Dan Gelber, said on Sunday.

For this reason, local authorities declared a state of emergency in the American city, famous for its beaches, out of concerns that the large crowds that gather for the “spring break” (spring break) represent a risk of contagion of coronavirus.

In Miami Beach there was already a curfew from midnight due to the pandemic, but this weekend the measure was brought forward at 8 at night, until 6 in the morning.
