A spectator who attended last weekend's WRC return in Estonia has tested positive to Coronavirus. Finnish website www.rallit.fi reported that the announcement was made by the Estonian Health Agency on Wednesday. "According to the health agency, the person had worn a face mask in the viewing areas of the special stages and had left the rally area as soon as he had felt the symptoms of the illness," it says. Rally Estonia allowed 16,000 spectators to attend the rally, divided into 16 groups of 1000 people each. Spectators would not granted access to the rally service park, so the infected person was not in contact with any of the rally crews or teams. Fans were also required to wear face masks. Increasing cases of COVID-19 in Europe is putting further events in the World Rally Championship at risk. In particular, October's Sardinia Rally in Italy is understood to be in danger.
