No, these pictures are not from another time before Corona!
In Brisbane, around 52,000 fans crowd in the almost sold-out stadium on Wednesday evening, cheering on their teams and drinking a beer. In addition, there are hardly any people with masks to be seen in the pictures. According to the organizer, it is the world’s largest sports event since the outbreak of the corona pandemic.
What is currently unimaginable in this country is the result of strict measures in Australia. Because in the state of Queensland, the corona situation is currently relaxed. On the day of the game, the state only had to report one new case. But if there are local outbreaks, strict lockdowns are imposed.
So while in Queensland just before the game 100 percent utilization of the stadiums was allowed, citizens in the neighboring state of South Australia have not even been able to go outside to play sports since Thursday. (red)
