Makes sense to an extent but that overlooks that 1) a lateral flows test is only about 60% accurate (better than nowt of course) so don’t ‘prove’ much 2) concourse outlets could be closed to facilitate the opening up of stadia to fans 3) 'getting' covid isn’t harmful for 95% + of people and those people for which it is harmful (and therefore they may contribute to an allegedly possible ‘overwhelming’ of the NHS if they end up in hospital) need to take personal responsibility for their choices about entering an environment where a lot of other people will be congregating (as they would or should done pre covid anyway) 4) a fleeting few seconds walking past someone who may have covid in a well ventilated concourse is ‘safer’ than being sat in a pub even if you are separated by screens – albeit not demonising hospitality here as it has been proved largely safe covid wise.Bangitintrnet wrote: January 12th, 2022, 11:23 am One thing I have not seen mentioned is the rule of six, in relation to sport being watched indoors in pubs.
Obviously if watching as a group of 6, if someone is asymptomatic, then it limits the possibility of spread to a max of 5 others.
Less so in the walkways and toilets at RP. If everyone could be trusted to flow and go, it wouldn't be a problem anywhere.
The idea that sitting in a fuggy pub watching a football game on TV is ‘safer’ than sitting or standing outside watching a football game appears even to my admittedly untrained eye, rather silly…if nothing else surely being outdoors for 2 hours is in itself healthier than being inside?
