Three supporters at Denmark's Euro 2020 games have tested positive for the delta variant

Danish health authorises are asking 4,000 soccer fans who attended the Euro 2020 game with Belgium to take Covid-19 tests.

The news comes after the Danish health minister confirmed via tweet that three supporters attending last week’s game have tested positive for the delta variant.

Danish media outlet The local.Dk reports “The Danish Patient Safety Authority said at a press conference on Tuesday that there had so far been only 29 coronavirus infections linked to the three Euro2020 matches played on Danish soil, against Finland on June 12th, against Belgium on June 17th, and against Russia on Monday night”.

The World Health Organization on Tuesday said it was concerned about the easing of Covid-19 restrictions by nations hosting Euro 2020 matches, noting that some were already seeing rising cases.

Over 23,000 supporters were present for Denmark’s matches with Belgium and Russia at Euro 2020 with 17,000 present for their opener with Finland.

Denmark fans are allowed travel to Amsterdam for Saturday’s last-16 meeting with Wales, however Wales supporters are banned as the UK is not on the Netherland’s travel list.
