Over 3,000 Atlético fans traveled the distance to England to host Liverpool and then celebrated with the team. Between the first Wanda Metropolitano match on February 18 and the visit of Anfield on March 11, only two were infected in Spain, after which the number has increased to an impressive 2,152 cases.
Taking advantage of the still weak control in this part of Europe, supporters of the “mattress” crossed the Channel to support their pets. The tight spaces in the aircraft helped to spread the virus rapidly. After the victory, many in the guest sector were hugging and kissing, followed by a party on the streets of Liverpool, which left a mark on the locals as well. This also contributed to the proliferation of COVID-19 and Madrid after their return to Spanish soil.
