For her part, the mayor of this municipality, Araceli Brown, mentioned during a live broadcast that now you can not enter these beaches until further notice due to the amount of pollution this generated, which just by walking on them you can get infections.
"The decision was made to close the beach until further notice, there is a spill of sewage from a power failure in the Sewage Treatment Plant, so the beach is very contaminated now," he said.
As a preventive measure the authorities mentioned that they will close their beaches to the general public, a closure that could extend for a period of approximately two weeks, so that no leisure or sports activities can be carried out.
Brown said that as of right now it is not possible to walk, run, much less swim or surf, and invited the population to take care of themselves.
