Almost 2,000 Covid-19 cases in Scotland have been linked to football fans watching the Euro 2020 games.

Of the 1,991 cases registered by Public Health Scotland (PHS), two-thirds said they traveled to London to see England versus Scotland on June 18.

A total of 397 of them were fans at the game at Wembley Stadium.

A PHS report said 55 cases were linked to a fan zone in Glasgow, while 38 and 37, respectively, were linked to Scotland v Croatia and Scotland v Czech Republic in Hampden Park.

The report states that it is working to ensure that “all public health measures are taken in close contact with these Euro 2020 cases”.

Cases were flagged when they were either attending an event organized by Euro 2020 such as a game at Hampden or Wembley or the fan zone in Glasgow Green, or an informal gathering such as a pub or house party to watch a game.

The numbers show that nearly three quarters – or 1,470 cases – with a Euro 2020 tag are people aged 20 to 39, and nine out of ten are men.

Participation in hospitality locations was the most frequently reported day with 34 percent of all tags.

After the game in London, Scot Billy Gilmour had to self-isolate after testing positive for Covid-19.

Englishmen Ben Chilwell and Mason Mount also had to isolate themselves after coming into close contact with Gilmour.
