While Spain is literally quarantined (656 people died as a result of the epidemic yesterday), not everyone agrees to abide by it. Among them, even those who are at risk and may not get out of intensive care in case of infection with coronavirus. So, in Spain, police detained a 77-year-old man who roamed the deserted streets of the historic center of Madrid.
When the police stopped the man, he told them that he refused voluntary self-isolation, as he “hunts Pokemon” in the popular mobile game Pokemon GO. Law enforcement officers reminded the man that this does not relieve him of responsibility for his own life and before the law. And they wrote out a fine, which was later published on Twitter.
