Springboks' Erasmus open to Lions series in Britain, Ireland - Houston Chronicle

CAPE TOWN, South Africa (AP) — South Africa director of rugby Rassie Erasmus is open to the Springboks' series against the British and Irish Lions being played away if that ensures it's not canceled. Erasmus said Monday the Springboks “will go to option Z” to make the three-test series happen amid the coronavirus pandemic. He stressed, though, it would be the senior leadership of South African rugby and the Lions organization who make the final decision on whether the series in July and August goes ahead as planned in South Africa, is played elsewhere, or is postponed. “We desperately want to play them,” Erasmus said. "We will do anything to play them. “Option A, option B, we will go to option Z ... We will play next year, we will play there (in Britain and Ireland), we will play here.” South Africa's 2019 Rugby World Cup-winning coach also revealed he, his wife and his children had recently contracted COVID-19. They had all recovered, Erasmus said, after he and his wife were “in a bad shape” for 5-6 days. Erasmus' comments on this year's scheduled Lions tour were the first significant reaction from South Africa after reports emerged that a contingency plan was being considered that would have the Springboks traveling instead of the Lions, and the tests being played in Dublin, Cardiff and London instead of Johannesburg and Cape Town. South Africa is in the grip of a second wave of the virus that has been described by the country's president and health authorities as worse than the first. South Africa also has not started vaccinating its people, making it unlikely that fans would be allowed into stadiums to watch Lions games in South Africa. No supporters have been allowed into any major sports events in South Africa since the start of the pandemic. . ..

Number of COVID-19 patients in Irish hospitals falls - Yahoo News

The number of patients being treated for COVID-19 in Irish hospitals fell on Tuesday from the highest level recorded since the pandemic began a day earlier, as a surge in infections that threatened to overwhelm the health system began to ease. Ireland had the fastest-growing incidence rate in Europe at the start of the year, fuelled by the relaxation of restrictions ahead of Christmas and the increasing prevalence of a new, more transmissible variant first detected in England. That led to 2,020 patients being admitted to hospital with COVID-19 by Monday, more than double the previous peak set in the first wave of infections in April.

In the UK, the Guardian reported: “‘Reckless’ Christmas easing of rules blamed for Ireland Covid surge”.
