Going raving is just as safe as going shopping – pilot study finds

Almost 60,000 have attended mass events over the last few weeks with only 15 people testing positive in the aftermath.

The UK government has been testing the ability for hospitality to open up without restriction by running a series of pilot events throughout the UK in different sectors. Music has played its part within the research, and the findings have returned some encouraging results. 

Only fifteen people so far have tested positive for COVID-19 following the research programme, named ERP (Events Research Programme) according to the UK quality daily newspaper – The Daily Telegraph. 

Several sources have since confirmed the statistic based on free-flow PCR test results posted by the attendees after the three events included in the study within the UK. 

Circus in Liverpool was the nominated music event in the trial, hosting two 3,000 strong raves with The BRIT Awards at The 02 Academy and The FA Cup Final at Wembley, completing the trio as part of the study to see if mass gatherings can resume safely. 

After preliminary data had been released earlier in the week, citing that mass events were as safe as ‘going shopping’, this second round of data offers more hope and evidence that venues, clubs and festivals can open on June 21st, restriction-free. 

The news comes as a welcome boost to the hospitality industry after being one of the worst-hit sectors caused by the pandemic. The evidence offers a much-needed boost to the sector. It reflects a wonderful feeling of positivity and hopes that the schedule for social contact limits to be removed and entertainment to open back up finally can happen on the specified roadmap date. 

Boris Johnson is set to receive the full ERP report in the coming days.
