    How would they know if your over 70, will there be more gestapo at the gates checking that you’re not borrowed a ticket from the under 70’s empty seat brigade ?

    Also good points.

    It could be argued, though, that players are surrounded by medical teams to the extent ordinary working people are not. Plus they are fitter and better placed to fight off disease due to specialized diet, access to sports science etc.

    It’s a very tough situation with sensible arguments on both sides and I am glad I am not the one who has got to decide!

    I reckon they should just shoot anyone that looks over 70.

    If you're over 70 you're more at risk of dying if you get it... but just as likely to unknowingly spread it as anybody under 70... so surely it is your choice whether you want to risk attending a game? The only person you are putting at risk is yourself?

    That’s my thought on it.
    So why not give the choice of attending and a refund on season card or ticket if you don’t.

    Living in Dublin, I think most City fans over here are self isolating

    self-isolation only works when you know you've got it. Well it's too late then because you've already infected 1-2 people and the chain reaction goes on.

    There should be pro-active mass testing. That's how Korea got on top of their epidemic.

    Government strategy of containment is complete rubbish as it just amounts to waiting. That's how the Italian epidemic started because no one was aware it was circulating.

    If it's only 163 people who have it then it's completely ridiculous to change your routines. However there's an unknown. What are the real numbers. There must be models out there but that's not the same as knowing.

    They should be testing randomly across the country to see what the real underlying prevalence is. Perhaps they know this and the info isn't being shared?

    Testing I believe really is key. That's the only way to assess risk which is the way you make a decision about stopping sports. At the moment it's just fear. Are we two weeks behind Italy, or is Italy one week behind Korea. I think Korea got ahead of the curve by being pro-active. Italy seem to be making lots of confused decisions such as closing schools and then inviting tourists into Milan. They need to find the people who have it and isolate them instead of just waiting for them to shout.
