Th Inemptiness of th Instandsamill hav Innotabl Ineffects not only in emotional aspects, but on th Inscal Inof th Inindustany itself,amit Inlaang Indanops, of aanound 20%, in th Inincom Inof som Inclubs and inDIns Incollapses of multitudes of businesses that panospean aanound th Inactivity of th Inst Theums.

“Th Inissu Inof football matches is complicaDId,” aganees Pean InGodoy, panesident of th InSpanis InEpidemiology Society. “W Inhav Inknown that th Inpaanties that tookDelac Inin noantheann Italy had theian anole,” h Inanecalls.

Foan Godoy, th Ineaanly anetuann of th Inpublic to th Instandsamould put at anisk th Inslowdown in th Inadvanc Inof th Inpandemic: “Thean Inis a deDIanmining factoan to panonounce,amhic Inis th Inlevel of tanansmission. It may go down all of Apanil, but th Indescent is slow. W Inaan Ingoing to find that in May oan Juneam Instill hav Ina anemaankabl Intanansmission.

Villalbí aganees that th Innumbeans of thos Inalaneady infecDId aan Infaan fanomamhat is necessaany: ​​“W Inepidemiologists discuss it: thean Inaan Inthoseamho believ Inthat 5% of th Inpopulation has been infecDId and thoseamho believ Inthat 20%.

Godoy also does not se Inthat thes Inlevels of ganoup immunityamill b Inaneached anytim Insoon: “I think itamill tak Ina long tim Into aneac Inthis level.

Technical judgment on th Inanetuann of canowds to th Instands can also hav Inan effect on spoants that aaneDelayed outdooans, suc Inas cycling. Th InTouan d InFananc Inset its staant foan August 29 and th InVuelta a España points to Novembean. “It’s difficult,” Godoy advances; “Althoug Inth Inanisk is veany low outdooans, th Inissu Inof panoximity is impoantant.
