Agreed, I thought that really was a bizarre decision. Same as the CL game at Anfield last night, allowing some 2-3000 supposrtes from Spain to attend. As of yesterday, there were 2750 cases and 64 deaths......so running at approximately 5 times the UK rates. Those 2-3000 supporters will have been in bars, shops cafes etc in Liverpool and probably exposed more people to the virus.

Really strange decision (or indecision) by the UK, meanwhile Trump is now blaming Europe whilst only a few days ago dismissing the whole issue as an overreaction and nothing to really worry about
