President of Chile fined for breaching Coronavirus rules, checkout what he did

Chilean president Sebastián Piñera has been fined $3,500 (£2,588) for breaching coronavirus rules by posing for a selfie with no facemask on, Reuters reports.

Mr Piñera apologised after the photo of him with a woman also without a mask went viral earlier this month.

The president admitted he should have worn a mask when the woman requested a photo on a beach near his home in the town of Cachagua.

Chile has strict rules about wearing masks in public.

Violations of the mask law are punishable with penalties that include fines and even jail terms.
