Novak Djokovic had made headlines when he was coronavirus positive a few weeks back. He was yet again spotted out in the public without wearing a mask in Spain. Moreover, he was not following the measures of social distancing and was papped chilling in the open.
Novak Djokovic spotted in Spain beach against safety norms
Spain has been massively hit by coronavirus pandemic, which increases one’s susceptibility to getting infected all the more. Even after going through an experience, the tennis player still chooses to not wear a mask. The 33-year-old player was spotted in Marbella, which is a popular vacation spot. He was hanging around with a bunch of people and enjoying like everything is normal.
Not only was the Serbian sportsman not wearing a mask, but none of the people in his group was also wearing a mask or maintaining distance. Spain has reported with more than 28,000 deaths, but a few beach areas have reopened now. There are currently 3,000 wardens appointed to patrol the beach in order to make sure people are maintaining safety measures and that includes wearing a mask.
People who don’t have a mask are also supposed to pay penalties including a fine of $110. It is obvious that Novak Djokovic can afford that amount. However, it will not help him avoid the humiliation in the public, yet again.
After holding a coronavirus infested tennis tournament in June, an action like this only goes on to show how a careless attitude can invite troubles. It is appalling to see how a celebrity, who is followed by people fail to realize their responsibilities towards the public along with self. The player had blown off social distancing norms and hosted a tennis tournament in Croatia. The incident left a group of people positive. But it looks like he doesn’t seem to learn from the incident.
Novak Djokovic and his wife have both recovered from the coronavirus and you’d wish they took it seriously. However, their actions show the exact opposite and that’s quite a shocker.
