Last month, Spain announced the results of a 5,000-strong concert experiment that took place without social distancing rules for the first time during the coronavirus pandemic. Officials said there were no signs of any viruses in connection with the concert.
Last month in Spain, the results of the concert experiment, which took place with the participation of 5,000 people, were revealed for the first time during the new type of coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak.
After the concert, where masks and hygiene measures were applied, it was announced that no one tested positive for coronavirus. Organizers said the lack of coronavirus cases after the concert was promising for the music industry.
“There is no indication that any virus was transmitted in connection with the concert,” said Josep Maria Llibre, a doctor at Germans Trias I Pujol Hospital, who analyzed the concert, which was an experiment in terms of being a first during the epidemic.
Llibre told a press conference that only 6 people in the audience had covid-19 positive cases 15 days after the concert, 4 of which were guaranteed by the organizers that there was no contamination related to the concert.
5,000 people watched a rock band perform at Barcelona’s Sant Jordi Gymnasium. Everyone who came to the concert was tested for Covid-19 rapid diagnosis between 09.00 and 16.00, and they were obliged to wear FFP2 type masks and use hand hygiene gel in the hall.
In Spain, a concert was held for the first time during the epidemic without the social distancing rule being applied, and organizers said it was a pilot project.
After the measures taken, it was stated that new concerts could be organized if the transmission of Covid-19 linked to the concert was not detected.
