As part of the COVID-19 quarantine, a ridiculous'trick' has emerged in Quebec, Canada, where a night curfew was issued.

On the 12th local time, Canadian CTV News and other foreign media reported that a couple living in Sherbrooke, Quebec, had been caught by the police on a night walk violating the state's curfew system.

Quebec has decided to ban going out from 8 pm to 5 am from the 9th to prevent the rapid spread of Corona 19.

However, only walking dogs with a leash is allowed.

However, the police patrolling around 9 o'clock the night the curfew was enforced found a man and woman wandering the streets.

It was only an hour after the new quarantine guidelines came into effect.

The police immediately stopped them, something strange.

There was a dog collar on the neck of the man, and the woman was holding the end of the rope.

The explanation given to the police by the two who claimed to be married was even more absurd.

When the police guided me about the new quarantine guidelines and asked me to go home, my wife replied, "I did not violate the quarantine guidelines. I am walking my dog ​​now."

Police officers, who were so embarrassed that they couldn't speak for a while, asked for cooperation again, but the wife repeatedly said, "I'm walking with a dog," pointing to her husband.

In the end, the police charged each couple with a fine of 1,546 Canadian dollars and about 1.3 million won for our money.

Police Isabel Gendron, who was confronting the couple at the time, said, "I didn't seem to want to comply with the request at all."

In Quebec, over 750 violations were reported over the weekend after the curfew was implemented.

Quebec Prime Minister François Lego called for compliance with the quarantine guidelines, saying, "I know the situation is difficult. But the Quebec citizens I know are people who can unite as a team when necessary."

As of the 12th (local time), the cumulative number of COVID-19 infections in Quebec was 230,000, accounting for more than a third of the total number of infections in Canada.

Over the past week, an average of 2,500 new cases have been reported per day in Quebec alone.
