Los Angeles Mayor said that authorities would turn off the water in homes hold parties during the pandemic.
The authorities of Los Angeles (California) will begin to cut off water and electricity in homes where parties with a large number of guests are held during the coronavirus pandemic, according to Mayor Eric Garcetti.
The relevant order has already been given to the city's water and energy Department. This measure, caused by an increase in the number of cases of infection with the new coronavirus, will begin to take effect from August 7.
"We have seen reports of mass parties and gatherings that violate the decrees issued during the pandemic. Such events have become a kind of night clubs," Garcetti said, explaining the administration's actions.
On August 5, the authorities of Los Angeles informed that over the past day, 2.3 thousand new cases of coronavirus infection were recorded in the city, 68 people died. Since the beginning of the pandemic, 197 thousand infected people and 4.8 thousand deaths have been registered in the megalopolis.
In recent weeks, the several American States, including Florida, Arizona, Texas, and California, have seen record rates of disease. Local authorities have suspended the process of easing or lifting sanitary restrictions that were started earlier. According to Johns Hopkins University, more than 4.8 million cases of coronavirus infection were detected in the United States, and more than 158.2 thousand people died.
