This Sunday, May 24 in Strasbourg, 400 people attended a football match within two districts, while crowds of more than ten people are forbidden in public space.
The municipal police intervened but had not been able to avoid the meeting.
Serge Oehler, deputy mayor of Strasbourg in charge of sport and the districts of Hautepierre, Pottery, and Cronenbourg, comments “I am frightened of such a lack of responsibility, imagine if it becomes a cluster.”
Officials of amateur clubs have been called to order by the municipality but also by the football district of Alsace in recent days since, given the prohibition, “several training sessions have been held,” stated the deputy mayor.
As a precaution on many points in Strasbourg the targets were withdrawn. The facts were learned from the press by René Marbach, the president of the Alsace district. He is “shocked” and believes that such a meeting is unlikely to have been organized by clubs.
This gathering ” is frankly unreasonable. The virus is always present and this kind of meeting can constitute a mini-viral bomb,” Professor Gilbert Deray, a doctor at the Pitié-Salpêtrière Hospital in Paris, wrote on Twitter.
