On the BBC Scotland website:
Glasgow’s Euro 2020 fan zone has been linked to more than 100 cases of Covid-19.
The Uefa football festival took place at Glasgow Green for the duration of the tournament in June and July.
In response to a freedom of information (FOI) request, Public Health Scotland (PHS) has revealed 103 cases were traced back to the event.
The Scottish government said that this number represented a “very small proportion” of those who attended.
In the days before the tournament kicked off, it gave the go-ahead to the fan area which could hold up to 6,000 people per day.
More than 100! Well, 103, that’s more than 100, I suppose but they must have been so disappointed. How much staff time went into this and other ratty adventures?
BBC Scotland loves FoI as a way of stirring up or more accurately, fabricating, problems in public services for which that SNP Scottish Government can be blamed. The BBC is, of course, exempt from FoI requests itself. Try asking what the viewing figures for Reporting Scotland are.
Labour’s Paul Sweeny and the Scotsman were keen to tell us that 74 000 of the Zone’s seats went unfilled and that the whole thing had been a ‘dangerous vanity project.’
40 000 seats were sold so that’s only 103 out of 40 000 who got infected, 0.25%, because it was outside?
