The UK will allow over 60 fans at Wembley in the EURO 000 semi-finals and final
The World Health Organization is "concerned" by the reduction of anti-covid restrictions in countries hosting games at EURO 2020, especially with regard to the large number of fans allowed in stadiums.
This concern was expressed after the UK announced that it will allow up to 60 fans at Wembley for the EURO 000 semi-finals and final. It will be the largest gathering of people at a sporting event in the UK in the last 2020 months.
It is not yet clear how many fans will be allowed to enter the stadium, but DCMS has announced that the presence at the stadium will be allowed at 75% of its capacity. According to some calculations, that would mean 67500 fans. Wembley is one of them 11 stadiums from EURO 2020.
WHO official Robb Butler told Sky News: "WHO is concerned about the reduction of restrictions in some host countries." He added: “Several stadiums hosting matches from EURO 2020 have been allowed to receive more spectators. In some of the host cities, the number of COVID-19 cases is already rising. "
We will see after July 15 whether this opening of the stadium gates will influence the evolution of the COVID-19 pandemic, given that the number of those vaccinated has increased, but also those who are naturally immunized.
