COVID-19: UK Government Gives Premier League Approval To Continue Matches. The UK government has given the Premier League the green light to carry on. This approval is given despite introducing tougher new coronavirus rules.
Also, the Football Association and EFL have also received assurances that they will be exempt ahead of this weekend’s FA Cup fixtures. Although this comes as a huge relief for English football, Prime Minister Boris Johnson brings in a new raft of rules and precautions to keep the players safe.
Football is seen as important for the national mood amid the COVID-19 pandemic and it can carry on in the Premier League, EFL, and FA Cup.
However, the COVID-19 alert in the UK as of Monday was raised to the highest level (5). This means the National Health Service (NHS), the government-funded healthcare system is on the brink of collapse.
