Back in April, when the COVD-19 pandemic was still in its early days, oncologist and bioethicist Zeke Emanual suggested that large municipal gatherings, such as live broadcasts, were unlikely to be safe until “2021 at the earliest. “. At that time, most of us welcomed this news with terrible disbelief. But after months of uncertainty, the fall of 2021 suddenly doesn’t seem so far away. This past weekend, Dr. Anthony Fauci, America’s most trusted authority on the pandemic, confirmed that live music could return sometime in the fall. At this stage, this is considered good news.
New York Times reports that Fauci had a virtual conference on Saturday with people from the performing arts world. During this call, Fautsi gave a vague schedule for when music venues and theaters might be able to reopen. It will be necessary for the American authorities to vaccinate somewhere between 70-85% of the population, leading us to herd immunity.
Here is what Fautsi said:
If all goes well, it will happen for a while in the fall of 2021, so by the time we get to the beginning of mid-autumn, you can make people feel safe on stage, as well as the people in the audience … I think that you can then begin to return to almost full capacity seats. We will return to the cinemas – the performers will perform, the audience will enjoy. It will happen.
This is probably not very convenient for artists like Weeknd, Rage Against The Machine and Justin Bieber, who rescheduled tours of the arena last summer for the summer of 2021. Fauci’s reassuring words also suggest that COVID vaccines will be effectively introduced and this is not the case. it hasn’t happened yet. It is still so something.
