S. Korea to al­low lim­ited num­ber of fans at games

Arab News - - Sport News - AFP

South Korea said Sun­day it will be­gin al­low­ing lim­ited num­bers of spec­ta­tors at sports games as it seeks to re­turn to nor­mal after months of strict so­cial dis­tanc­ing rules to com­bat the coro­n­avirus.

The coun­try en­dured one of the worst early out­breaks of the dis­ease out­side China but ap­pears to have brought it broadly un­der con­trol with an ex­ten­sive “trace, test and treat” pro­gram while never im­pos­ing a com­pul­sory lock­down.

So­cial dis­tanc­ing rules were re­laxed in early May and some pro­fes­sional sports — in­clud­ing base­ball and soc­cer — started new sea­sons al­beit be­hind closed doors.
