The Barceloneta beach appeared to be crowded as Barcelona reopened beaches on Wednesday. Recreational bathing is still prohibited, as well as lying on the sand.
Many residents from Barcelona visited the beach from the early morning, seemingly undeterred by it being a weekday.
Many residents insist they were unaware that sunbathing on the sand and recreational bathing in the water were restricted... Еще after City Hall originally announced they would be permitted, but retracted these measures.
“For those of us who have been living in very small flats all this time, having the freedom to see the sea and lie under the sun is magic, and it gives us strength to continue fighting and being alert,” said Ingrid, a resident.
As of Tuesday, the Spanish Ministry of Health registered more than 230,000 people infected, 27,000 related deaths and 150,000 recoveries from coronavirus. The data on the evolution of the pandemic in recent days shows a noticeable improvement in the country's health situation.
