England's decision to allow multiple sporting events that included large gatherings after it was known the coronavirus was in the country is coming under further scrutiny. 

As The Telegraph's Paul Nuki wrote on Tuesday, the derby between Manchester United and Manchester City on March 8 and the Liverpool- Atletico Madrid Champions League tie on March 11, as well as the Cheltenham Festival, are all being linked to spikes in coronavirus deaths. 

Nuki added: 

Analysis by Edge Health, a leading supplier of data to the NHS, shows that each fixture is linked to between 2.5 and 3.5 additional deaths per day at local hospitals 20 to 35 days later, compared with similar hospital trusts which were used as a control.
