A video is doing rounds on the internet which shows a man from Murcia in Spain taking to the streets wearing a highly unusual form of ‘protection gear’ -- a T-Rex costume. Although he got pulled by the cops and schooled for it, the video has left netizens in splits.
Murcia Police shared the video on Twitter and wrote, "During state of alarm, walking of pets is allowed if accompanied by one person, always short walks so they can relieve themselves. Having a Tyrannosaurus rex is not covered. #stayathome.”

Spain has confirmed nearly 3000 new cases of the novel coronavirus within just 24 hours, spiking the total cases past 14,769 with 638 fatalities, the country's health ministry has confirmed. Spain is the fourth worst-hit country after China, Italy, and Iran, with numbers soaring rapidly despite an unprecedented national lockdown.
At least 1,987 have been infected and few more suspected cases have emerged in the past 24 hours, Fernando Simon, the ministry’s immediate emergency coordinator said. Spain has taken the drastic measure restricting the movement of its 46 million population to stem the further spread of the disease. The recoveries in the country, however, stood at approximately 1,081, Simon added, which constitutes 9% of the total cases.
