The clinical trial PRIMACOV and it is a fact. The first phase of the study took place last Saturday, December 12, in the Apolo hall: 1,042 people participated in this study on the realization of a concert without social distance and in a totally safe way. All of them had previously performed rapid antigen tests (together with a PCR), the result of which in 15 minutes determined their access to the room. Because that was the objective of this study: to validate the tests as an extremely useful tool to be able to carry out any type of event, whether musical or not, without social distance.
This successful participation and organization, however, is not yet complete: it is necessary that the 1,042 people who were part of both the control group and those who accessed the room come next Sunday, December 20, to perform a new PCR to that the results are fully valid.
