400 people attended a football match between two districts at Strasbourg on May 24,  while groups of more than ten people are banned in public space.

The municipal police tried but had not been able to avoid the meeting.


“I am frightened of such a lack of responsibility, imagine if it becomes a cluster, ” comments Serge Oehler, deputy mayor of Strasbourg in charge of sport and the districts of Hautepierre, Pottery, and Cronenbourg, is terrified of such a shortage of responsibility and is worried if it becomes a cluster.

Officials of amateur clubs have been called to order by the municipality but also by the football district of Alsace in recent days since, given the prohibition, “several training sessions have been held,” stated the deputy mayor.

According to the president of the Alsace district René Marbach, the targets were withdrawn as a precaution on many points in Strasbourg. He is “shocked” and believes that such a meeting is unlikely to have been organized by clubs.

On Twitter, Professor Gilbert Deray, a doctor at the Pitié-Salpêtrière Hospital in Paris, believes that this gathering ” is frankly unreasonable. The virus is always present and this kind of meeting can constitute a mini-viral bomb. “
