"several meetings taking place with hundreds of spectators"
Instead of the usual thousands! MM asks the question "Have you actually been there?". I took my grandson only this afternoon, limited number of admissions so plenty of space between groups, all drivers, marshals and staff wearing masks (unlike most High Street shop staff) and very, very few spectators without, mostly when eating or drinking.
You'd have stood more chance of infection taking a walk in town!
We've also been to the Hippodrome this year, being indoor audience perhaps closer together but ALL wearing masks without exception.
It was being reported that "Normal" Flu & it variants were at a very low level in the Southern hemisphere winter which is coming to an end , with the reason suggested this has bee due to the various lockdowns & Covid19 precautions lie hand washing sanitising & avoiding the older & more vulnerable in the community (In UK 65% of hospital admissions with flu are from Care Homes + 20% from Residential Schools. With the current procedures in place we have to just hope all goes ok.
