COVID-19 is ruining the party as police break up street parties and victory party is postponed

Liverpool soccer fans let off flares outside the Liver Building in Liverpool, England on June 26, 2020 despite being urged to celebrate the club's Premier League triumph at home.Spare a thought for the fans of Liverpool Football Club. They waited 30 years for their soccer team to win the league title and, now that the Reds have finally done it, COVID-19 is ruining the party.

“It’s not the way we would have planned to celebrate if you’d asked us at the start of the year,” said Josh Sexton, the editor of The Anfield Wrap, a website that covers the team. He celebrated at home on Thursday with his mother and brother after Chelsea defeated second-placed Manchester City 2-1 to give Liverpool an insurmountable lead atop the standings.

There’s good reason for caution. Britain has had more than 309,000 confirmed cases of the virus and more than 43,000 people have died. The Liverpool area has suffered one of the highest infection rates in the country and the region has recorded more deaths in recent weeks than anywhere else in the United Kingdom.

The Premier League resumed play on June 17 after a three-month suspension with nine games remaining for most clubs. But all of the games are being played behind closed doors and the players and staff have been following strict testing regimes.
