As if Corona was not … witness the celebrations of football fans in Alabama

Thousands of soccer fans took to the streets around the University of Alabama after the Crimson Tide team beat Ohio State’s team 52-24 for the National Collegiate Football Championship, ignoring calls for caution and safety at the height of the coronavirus pandemic.

Students and other crowded bars streamed near the campus late Monday, and traffic cameras and pictures posted on social media showed the gatherings on University Street in an area called “The Strip.”

Many fans were shouting and cheering as they pressed each other on the street without masks, in a scene officials feared before the match, urging people to watch her at home and celebrate in private.

More than 5,300 people have died in Alabama from the Corona virus, and about 404,000 infections have been recorded.
