This means that subsequent test cases executed within the same application that don't create the event loop will fail. This seems like a behaviour change that wasn't raised on the original PR.

$ cat
from unittest import IsolatedAsyncioTestCase, TestCase, main
import asyncio

class Test1(IsolatedAsyncioTestCase):
    async def test_one(self):

class Test2(TestCase):
    def test_two(self):
        loop = asyncio.get_event_loop()

if __name__ == "__main__":
$ /usr/local/opt/python@3.8/bin/python3
ERROR: test_two (__main__.Test2)
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "", line 13, in test_two
    loop = asyncio.get_event_loop()
  File "/usr/local/Cellar/python@3.8/3.8.1/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.8/lib/python3.8/asyncio/", line 639, in get_event_loop

The behavior is intentional and follows semantics.
Moreover, every test should have a separate event loop instance, this is stressed by IsolatedAsyncioTestCase class name
