Large events like club nights and gigs look likely to go ahead come summer, after a series of pilot events by the government involving 58,000 people resulted in just 15 positive cases of Covid-19.
Heres Exactly How Many People Got Covid At Those Mass Events
Since April, the Events Research Programme (ERP) has analysed the Covid risk of several large-scale indoor and outdoor events, including the Brit Awards, the FA Cup Final and a club night in Liverpool.
The events tested a range of interventions – such as altering the layout of the venue, face coverings and ventilation – and all attendees took Covid tests before and after the event.
Culture secretary Oliver Dowden said the events were a “real success” in an interview with the Evening Standard and hopes that by June 21 stadiums will be full and the lights will be back on in the West End.The indoor gigThe Brit Awards took place on May 11 as part of the government’s live events pilot scheme and was the first large-scale indoor music event of the year.
The ceremony, which included performances by Dua Lipa and Sir Elton John, featured an audience of 4,000 people at the O2 Arena.
No cases emerged from the event where audience members were not socially distanced or required to wear face coverings once seated.A snooker tournamentCrowds at the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield were increased as the snooker tournament progressed, culminating in a full house for the final on May 2 and 3.
Four cases of Covid occurred across the 17 days of the championships.The outdoor gigAround 5,000 people packed into Sefton Park in Liverpool earlier this month for an outdoor gig, which included performances from Blossoms, The Lathums and local singer-songwriter Zuzu. 
Two cases were recorded after the event. A Football matchThe FA Cup semi-final between Leicester and Southampton at Wembley on April 18 was the first outdoor sports event to welcome back spectators, though it was limited to residents and key workers living near the stadium.
There have been no cases reported from Wembley.A night clubbingClub night Circus hosted The First Dance in Liverpool, where revellers, who all had to produce negative lateral flow tests, did not have to wear face coverings or socially distance.
Nine cases were found among 6,000 clubbers across two nights.
A Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport spokesperson said the mass event figures are based on what has been seen “so far” and further data needs to be collected on other events. They said a full report will be presented to the prime minister on a date to be confirmed.Related...Here's What Those Mass Event Trials Found About Covid RiskLockdown Is Basically Over And Brits Are Really HornyRevealed: How More Contagious Covid Variants SpreadChances Of Covid Restrictions Ending In England On June 21 'Looking Good'
