There has been “no sign” of coronavirus infection among 5,000 unvaccinated people who took part in an indoor trial concert last month in Barcelona

This afternoon.

Barcelona, Spain.

Ahead of the gig everyone underwent mass screening and antigen tests. They were tested again 15 days later and only six people were found to have Covid-19.

“We are certain that in four of these six cases, transmission did not take place during the concert,” Josep Maria Llibre, a specialist in infectious diseases said.
