A study of NHS data suggests that Liverpool’s Champions League last 16 clash with Atletico Madrid in March led to ’41 additional deaths’ in the coronavirus health crisis.
The game went ahead before lockdown restrictions coming in, despite a huge outbreak of the virus in Madrid. Around 3,000 Atletico fans went to the game.
The Sunday Times reported that Edge Health’s analysis showed 41 extra deaths happened around 25-35 days after the game.
Britain also has the worst record in Europe for coronavirus deaths, with shambolic prime minister Boris Johnson doing a pitiful job at the helm of the country.
