Obviously, this is just a GIF, and we can't look too deeply into its specifics, beyond an inspiration for discussion. However, I see it as a comment on collectivism.
The chlorinated pool water is a distraction. Obviously, submerging people in chlorinated water sanitizes them, but it does not prevent the main method of coronavirus transmission: droplets contained in coughing/sneezing/breathing of sick people (who may be asymptomatic), which then contact the mucous membranes of healthy people. Being in a chlorinated pool does not stop this, and social distances of six feet or more are difficult to maintain in a pool.
Thus, there is a public health hazard in group pool use, and, to preserve the health of the group, everyone must agree to not use the pool. Therefore, it's not appropriate for one person to say: "Well, if nobody is in the pool, then there's no problem if I use the pool, right?" From an infectious disease perspective, that person is correct. From a cultural or social perspective, they're being selfish.
Yes, the spectators are all very close to each other anyway. That's also a valid point.
