SPAIN’S maritime rescue service has shared a video on social media to cheer up the majority of the country stuck indoors as COVID19 grips the nation.
Advising everybody to “stay home”, the Salvamento Maritimo clip on Facebook is captioned: “We open a window to the sea so you can enjoy the show, watching our Salvamar Fomalhaut sail.”
The footage has been met with appreciation, with comments like: “Thank you very much for sharing this video, for those of us who are #StayHome. At least those of us who are far from the sea can enjoy it psychologically. By the way, is the water cold?”
