‘Stay home,’ says US Mayor at Mexico beach resort

(FASTNEWS | COLOMBO) –  A US mayor who flew off by private jet on holiday while urging residents to stay home is the latest politician to be accused of Covid-19 hypocrisy.

Steve Adler, leader of Austin, Texas, went on a family getaway to Mexico as he told people to keep indoors amid spiralling virus caseloads.

He recorded a video from the beach resort instructing residents back home: “This is not the time to relax.”

But Mr Adler, a Democrat, denied violating his own regulations.
