The world in general goes to suffer important changes as a result of the coronavirus and goes to take enough time in returning to the normality of before the virus. It is evident that in a context like this the sport also will see very affected and seems that it remains a lot to see again the full stadiums of people encouraging to his teams. The normal would be that the football and the rest of sports went back from June or July, as how advance the pandemia, but everything indicates that it will be to enclosed door during quite a lot of time.

As it aims the newspaper 'MARK', that has collected statements of several experts in the subject, is very likely that can not fill the stadiums to within of 18 months. Epidemólogos And doctors of all the world think that without vaccine will not be possible to contain the virus in spaces with so many people. The risk of infection with 20.000, 30.000 or 60.000 together viewers without being vacunados would be too high and see it like something that the world can not allow.

Zach Binne, epidemólogo of the University of Emory, explained this with an absolute forcefulness. "What the people needs to understand, epidemiológicamente speaking, is that each person that great adds risk. If there are five people is more dangerous that if there is two, 10 is more dangerous that five, 500, more than 10. 60.000 it is very, very dangerous. Like scientist, hate to say that I am to 100% insurance of something, but am more near of 100% that never that we can not go back to fill the stadiums until have a vaccine. Point", commented.

The doctor Carlos Alberto Sands, specialist in Preventive Medicine thinks the same and sees complicated to go back to gather to so many people without vaccines and without knowing that have the necessary antibodies not to take the illness. "Has quite felt that it do not go back until there is a vaccine from the point of view of the preventive medicine. I do not think that there is immunity of sufficient group to do these events because the important is not what breathe but what touch. It is a subtler transmission that the aerial. Besides, the people in the stadium will arouse and will embrace ... Because in the sports there is a lot of emotion. If it saved the distance of security would be well, but see it really complicated", confessed.

There are visions no so negative

On the other hand, there is the one who thinks that 18 months could be a too exaggerated date. The doctor Nacho of Blas, epidemólogo, thinks that it is prompt to say something like this. "Any concentration of people in a same place during a prolonged period of time is a risk, but 18 months perhaps seems me excessive. The availability of the vaccine do not see it so simple. The problem is that for the moment it is very soon to do this proposal since we do not know the percentage of inmunizados that there will be when it finish the phase epidémica", said.

Of Blas finalised admitting that it would be little viable even put to fewer people of which fits in the stadiums to respect the distance of security and the measures of prevention against the COVID-19. "It can be complicated fill a field of 50.000 viewers with 25.000 respecting these norms of social distance, in addition to the risk that comports the one who displace interested of distinct parts of the country", exposed, before puntualizar that does not think that anybody go to dare to take a decision like this of risky. "I think that politically anybody goes to assume a risk potentially high of propagation of the virus since 'cat escaldado until of the cold water escapes", concluded.
