Will EURO 2020 be affected by the coronavirus?

The deadly coronavirus has already hit Europe and according to the numbers, Italy has been highly affected and some sporting events are even being played behind closed doors.

However, it is not clear yet whether the Euro 2020 will be affected, given that Italy is one of the 12 countries hosting the tournament.

But, a vice president of the European soccer body, UEFA said: "We are at the waiting stage. We are monitoring country by country, and football must follow the orders of the individual countries," Italian Michele Uva, a member of the UEFA executive committee, told state broadcaster Rai.

"The sporting path will only be closed if the situation gets worse."

Rome, which has not been affected so far, is due to hold three group stage matches and one quarter-final of the Euro 2020 tournament in June and July.

The safety of fans and players will be a top priority ahead of planning, and very high preventative measures will be taken.
