With record contamination indicators in the past few days, Miami-Dade County has ordered the curfew to return. The new rule came into force yesterday (3) and imposes the restriction in the period from 10 pm to 6 am. The measure comes just after the new announcement for closing the beaches on July 1, the day the United States broke a new daily record, for the third consecutive day, of new infections. 53,069 new contaminations were recorded, increasing the total infected on American soil to 2,735,339, according to the Johns Hopkins University Center.
The Mayor of Miami, Carlos Gimenez, also announced that he intends to revoke the reopening of entertainment centers such as cinemas, theaters, casinos and concert halls.
“The Miami-Dade police will be vigilant this weekend, alongside city departments, to monitor. The offenders caught will face a second-degree criminal misdemeanor, with a $ 500 fine (approximately R $ 2,600) ) and 180 days in prison, “Gimenez said.
The second wave of contamination hit the states that anticipated the easing of the quarantine, after pressure from President Donald Trump.
