Britain: No date set for fans return

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Friday that it was decided to postpone the experience of the mass attendance that had been scheduled in some sporting events in his country for a period of at least two weeks, due to the high rate of cases of emerging coronavirus.

The announcement means that the public will not be allowed to attend horse races scheduled to begin tomorrow Saturday in Goodwood, as well as the World Snooker Championship at the Crossbill Theater in Sheffield.

These developments also mean that the public will not be attending some of the local cricket matches scheduled for the beginning of next week as planned.

The British Prime Minister told a news conference, “It will not allow large public audiences to attend sporting events.”

“I said in May that we would not hesitate to back down when the slightest indication of an increase in numbers came in the wrong direction,” Johnson added.

Thus, the new restrictions on public attendance in Britain will continue until at least August 15.
