Fans back at stadiums in UK, US and hopefully in Malaysia soon
This was the scene during the Manchester United v Leeds United match on Saturday.
The same sight was seen in the Major Soccer League as fans flock back to the stands in full force.
What is scary to me is that there was no physical distancing observed and the supporters were generally without face masks.
This despite the UK and US continue to record high number of Covid-19 cases daily.
Immune to the coronavirus? Simply don't care? Or is this the respective governments' way of saying: "Hey, the coronavirus is going to be here so we can't be at its mercy forever."
What do the Premier League protocols say? According to the BBC:
- Supporters could face random spot-checks of their Covid-19 status
- This means proof of full vaccination or a recent negative lateral flow test
- Supporters must follow a new 'supporter code of conduct' which includes wearing masks indoors, avoiding close contact and following one-way systems.
