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."
He told the Austin American-Statesman, which revealed his trip: "There was no recommendation for people not to travel during that period of time.
"Someone could look at me and say, 'He travelled.' But what they could not say is that I travelled at a time when I was telling other people not to travel."
