Britain partially lifts restrictions; fans can finally watch English Premier League games in stadiums

A maximum of 4,000 fans will initially be allowed into venues in the areas with the lowest COVID-19 infection rates.

Supporters are set to return to English Premier League games next week for the first time since March. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is allowing a return of spectators to sports stadiums as part of an easing of coronavirus restrictions when the national lockdown ends on December 2. A maximum of 4,000 fans will initially be allowed into venues in the areas with the lowest COVID-19 infection rates and up to 2,000 in the areas placed in the next tier of restrictions. The highest-risk areas still won't be allowed fans. Plans for the return of spectators in October were put on hold due to a spike in coronavirus cases. The government will announce on Thursday which tiers English cities and regions will be placed into. “We are able to get the turnstiles turning sooner than expected,” Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden said on Monday, “taking a cautious approach and starting with the lowest risk areas first. I'm confident that sports will take every step to ensure their fans are safe, and fans will play their part and look out for each other until we can safely get everyone back in." Britain has been Europe's hardest-hit country during the pandemic, with 55,230 known deaths within 28 days of a positive coronavirus test including another 206 in Monday's daily update.

It will be like other health app but the main thing will be that everyone will be able to evaluate their fitness, the official said.

Sports Secretary Ravi Mittal on Saturday said the government is planning to launch an application in January next year to help people check and improve their fitness level. "We are developing a fit India app next year, it will be like other health app but the main thing will be that everyone will be able to evaluate their fitness," Mittal said during a Airtel Delhi Half Marathon press conference. "We will be launching this app sometime in January. I would like to request all the participants in the event to come to this app and check their fitness.

Some of the world's top runners, including defending champions Ethiopia's Andamlak Belihu and Tsehay Gemechu, will take part in the Airtel Delhi Half Marathon, one of the first global sporting events to be hosted by India during the COVID-19 pandemic. Extending his best wishes to the event, Mittal said: "Events like this will help us to understand that things are slowly getting normal, if we have to win medals in Olympics, we have to change ourselves, how long can we stop ourselves for COVID. So these events will help in strengthening our mind." "I would like to request procam to organise more such marathons before the Olympics, so we can strengthen the mind. We can sponsor them if necessary, fund will not be a problem." Athletics Federation of India (AFI) president Adille Sumariwalla said ADHM is going to be the "launch of Indian athletics towards the Olympic games." "This is the first event happening in India, we have been under shutdown. The athletes are rearing to go, for the athletes they can't just be training, they have to compete. So it will be a starting point," he said. "From April onwards there was a blackout period, that gets over now. This is the resurgence of athletes, resurgence of sports, there are some top class runners who are coming, as sports person, we like to take on the challenge, we will compete, and come on top." The international and Indian elite runners will be at the start line at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Delhi, while the amateurs from across the globe will join them via the exclusive Airtel Delhi Half Marathon Mobile App.
