On Wednesday, 23rd June 2021, the government of United Kingdom has now been facing the accusations of the decision for it made for allowing the fans at the Webley stadium for the later stages of the UEFA Euro 2020. This decision could possibly be threatening the plans of the UK government for completely lifting the covid-19 restrictions in the United Kingdom.
Followed by a request from UEFA, governing body of European football, for allowing more fans inside the Wembley stadium at London for the semi-finals and final of the Euro 2020, the government of United Kingdom has agreed for increasing the capacity of the Wembley stadium to 75 percent, and this decision from the government of UK will be making the three matches with the largest gatherings of the people at a sporting event sin the beginning of the novel corona virus pandemic in March 2020.
The decision of the UK government for increasing the capacity of Wembley has increased the worries that, it might be responsible for fuelling the ongoing wave of the novel corona virus infections in the United Kingdom, that has already been responsible in enduring the second worst covid-19 pandemic death toll in the continent of Europe.
A warning has been given by Lawrence Young, a virologist at the University of Warwick that, allowing the crowd of 60,000 fans at the Wembley stadium has been a recipe for the disaster along with the fear of the continuous and rapidly spreading delta variant of covid-19, that the scientists say is around 40 percent to 80 percent more contagious.
