Norfolk COVID-19 Rates Have Increased Due to Euro 2020 Matches

-

- Advertisment -

The county’s director of public health indicated that people gathering to watch Euro 2020 football matches contributed to growing Covid rates in Norfolk.

Rates in Norfolk are now at 220 cases per 100,000 people, with Great Yarmouth (476 cases per 100,000 people) and Norwich having the highest rates (276 cases per 100,000 people).

Dr Louise Smith, Norfolk’s director of public health, said there was evidence that certain outbreaks were linked to people gathering to watch some of the Euro 2020 matches, in which England advanced to the final before losing on penalties to Italy.
“The cases we are seeing are in young individuals under the age of 40, and we are starting to pick up outbreaks and specific clusters of cases that we are fairly sure we can link back to gatherings related to the football,” she stated on BBC Radio Norfolk.

“Some of the ones we’re looking at right now are from older football matches,” says the researcher.

“I haven’t seen any outbreaks tied to the final, but we believe it is a foregone conclusion.”

Dr. Smith said 19 persons in the county’s hospitals had tested positive for Covid-19, and he advised people to remain careful because immunizations do not provide 100 percent protection.
