On April 28, the Spanish Government decided to spray the beach at Zahara de los Atunes with bleach to protect children from COVID-19. Tractors were used to spray around 2km of the beach with a bleach solution before children were allowed to go out .

Greenpeace España called out authorities as they indicated that it is currently breeding season for the birds.

María Dolores Iglesias, who heads an environmental volunteer group in the Cadiz region, said the bleach “killed everything on the ground, nothing is seen, not even insects

Spain currently has the 2nd largest number of cases of COVID-19 with 245, 567 infected and 25,100 deaths according to worldmeters.info. These are very alarming numbers. However, maybe they can consult experts and groups before bleaching a beach.
