Soho: Thousands of drinkers swarm the streets as pubs close early in the chaos of Super Saturday | United Kingdom | news

Crowded scenes in one of London’s largest party districts sparked concern that people were not following the rules of social estrangement. Many went down to Twitter to share videos and images of “absolute madness” while the streets seemed rammed with people who were close by.

Another social media user was worried about coronavirus cases that arose after people were so close.

They wrote on Twitter: “Soho, London, early tonight. Wondering how fast this will reach the R rate …”

A third person added that they thought the crowded streets were “embarrassing”.

They said, “Soho and England. What a slap in the face for the NHS, the police, the firefighters, the teachers and all those in the public sector.

“Please tell me how to say my sixth year bubble at a social distance while the adults don’t? I’m so angry. Embarrassing.”
