In an unprecedented incident, Chilean President Sebastián Piñera has been fined for not wearing mask in a public place breaching the pandemic guideline.
According to a BBC report, President Sebastián Piñera recently came out in public wearing a hat and sunglasses and posed for a selfie with smiley face on a beach with a passer-by earlier this month.
The photo, which went viral, looks innocent enough. But there was just one problem: the president wasn't wearing a face mask.
Now Mr Piñera has been fined $3,500 for breaching coronavirus rules on Friday.
Chile, where coronavirus infections are on the rise, has strict rules about wearing masks in public, with violations punishable by fines and even jail terms.
However, the president has apologised and admitted he should have worn a mask when the woman requested a photo on a beach near his home in the town of Cachagua.
