One source, who tested positive for Covid just days after attending the Baftas, told The Hollywood Reporter: “It seems the weekend may have been a super-spreader event.”
An apparent spread of Covid at the Baftas earlier this month has led to concerns that some of the Oscar nominees who were at the event will not make the Academy Awards on Sunday (28 March).
One of those who tested positive after attending the ceremony was Belfast director-producer Kenneth Branagh. The film’s star Ciarán Hinds also contracted the virus.
According to US reports, the talk at the Producers Guild of America nominees breakfast this weekend was largely dedicated to worries that the Baftas at London’s Royal Albert Hall on 13 March was a super-spreader event.
