“Easy to see how this could morph into an ´entrance dependent on being vaccinated’ scheme”
by Steve Watson
Football fans in Liverpool, UK are being mandated to take COIVD tests before attending a match Monday, and those who do not will be refused entry even if they have bought tickets.
Fans of Everton FC were warned by the club that they must produce negative test results issued no more than 36 hours previously or be barred from entering the stadium to see the team play against Manchester City.
[…] Liverpool has thus far escaped complete lockdown, like much of the rest of the country, and therefore some sports fans are allowed to attend events, albeit in the case of Everton FC fans, with this new mandate.
Several fans pointed out that the tests are highly inaccurate, and that a negative result from a day or two ago means little:
Using a lateral flow test with 50% accuracy, you’d be as well asking them to guess heads or tails correctly, to gain entrance.
