David Artell is relived that the country has reportedly hit the peak of coronavirus infections but he remains cautious. The Alex boss says it is imperative that the public continue to abide with the government advice on social distancing and only venturing out for emergencies, shopping for essentials or participating in an hour of exercise.
The public have done their bit to stay at home, protect the NHS and protect lives and if we continue to do so then there is more chance of normality and football returning sooner rather than later.
When asked about the latest about the situation surrounding Covid-19, the Alex boss said: “The news that we could be over the peak is very encouraging. We want to limit the infections and consequently the death toll as much as possible.
“We are nowhere near where we need to be because people are sadly still dying. The death toll is horrific. We have to remain cautious and tread carefully because we don’t want to reintroduce measures and then see a second spike.
“We have to listen to the advice and hopefully we will get over this quicker than expected. We should only return to normal things when it is totally safe to do so and that has to include training and playing football again.
The boss added: “I just hope that all our supporters and everyone associated with Crewe Alexandra continues to be safe and well.”
