Of the roughly 5,000 people in attendance, six tested positive within 14 days of the gig. This is a lower infection rate than currently seen in the general population and half the infection rate among people in the same age range. Infectious disease specialist Josep Maria Llibre concluded that there was “no sign that suggests transmission took place during the event.”
