Thousands hit the beaches in California as US Coronavirus death toll hits 50,000

Americans in Southern California have been flocking to the beach to enjoy the warm weather despite the Coronavirus death toll in America soaring past 50,000.

Many of the beaches in Orange County are still open despite the lockdown in the region. And thousands headed to the beach last weekend to top up their Vitamin D levels.

The official rules state that you can leave the house, but you must be at least 2m apart while car parks have been closed. But that hasn’t stopped tens of thousands of people flocking to the beach to get their sand and sea fix.

Lifeguards estimated around 40,000 people were on the Newport Beach near LA last weekend.

America leading the way

Sadly, America is leading the way when it comes to the Coronavirus.

The United States has over a third of the global confirmed cases at 1.1 million and by far the highest number of deaths.

America has currently recorded 56, 634 deaths, more than double the number of fatalities in Spain.

The UAE meanwhile has 10,839 cases and 82 deaths.

In the latest news from Dubai, the city could start re-opening itself for tourism as early as July.
