Nearly 2,000 covid cases in Scotland linked to Euro 2020 gatherings

Scottish authorities have reported nearly 2000 covid 19 cases linked to watching European Championship games in stadiums, public gatherings, pubs or private homes.
The data focuses on the first two weeks of Euro 2020 when the national team played two games at Hampden Park in Glasgow and one against England in London.
The 1991 coronavirus cases are only Scottish residents.
Public Health Scotland says 1294 of the people infected had travelled to London for the England game on June 18.
But it says 397 of them were at Wembley Stadium for the match.
The PHS report found 55 cases connected to the fan zone in Glasgow.
There were 38 positive tests linked to Scotland’s game against Croatia and 37 from the match against the Czech Republic.
Cases were tagged as related to Euro 2020 even if the person attended an informal gathering.
About three-quarters of the cases were people between ages 20 to 39.
Nine out of 10 infections involved men.
Public Health Scotland didn’t immediately respond to a question about how many of the people infected had been vaccinated.
