Chairman of the Board of “Arena Riga”: Relaxation of gathering restrictions will increase the number of events – Cultural and entertainment events – Culture +

Speaking about whether the changes, which will take effect from August 17, will also affect the organizers of large concerts, Krastiņš said that the event with 1,000 people can be considered small on average. In the case of “Arena Riga”, such concerts, when the organizer indicates at the time of concluding the contract that he is interested in 1000 visitors, are extremely rare.

The minimum number of visitors when you could talk about some kind of profit could be from 2500, 3000 viewers and up.

Asked what is currently happening with the organization of international concerts, Krastiņš pointed out that the situation is in line with what is happening. As artists are not able to move freely throughout Europe, large-scale concert tours are not economically viable, as they have to think about both the delivery of technical equipment to the venue and the service staff, which is usually quite large.

“If, for example, concerts with up to 5,000 visitors could take place in the Baltics, it does not mean that it would be economically advantageous for a group from Great Britain, Germany or France to drive ten trucks and 50 employees to Latvia, Lithuania or Estonia,” Krastiņš explained. account must also be taken of the country from which artists come and whether they do not have to comply with quarantine.

According to the Chairman of the Board of “Arena Riga”,

The international concert industry is currently waiting for the situation to improve and only then will it start planning concert tours.

The artists who were scheduled to perform in the multifunctional hall have been moved to next year. In Krastiņš’s opinion, announcing new concerts will be rare. This is closely linked to travel and not just in the European Union.

Asked how “Arena Riga” is going through the Covid-19 crisis, Krastiņš admitted that the situation is difficult.

Since March 13, no event has taken place in “Arena Riga”. All possible costs have been reduced and redundancies have taken place.

“We have used and plan to use all possible state support mechanisms and we are very grateful for them. That is how we are trying to survive in these difficult times,” said Krastiņš, noting that it is currently impossible to plan something long-term, because “uncertainty is our new reality “.

The Chairman of the Board of the Hall indicated that the Continental Hockey League season will resume in September and “Dinamo Rīga” will start playing “Arena Riga” home games. In Krastiņš’s opinion, it will be small, but still the beginning for some life to return to “Arena Riga”.

“Previously, more than 250 people worked for events in the hall. Now most of the jobs have been laid off. Resuming operations, albeit to a small extent, will help reduce losses. We are not talking about profits, but about efforts to reduce the big deficit,” said Krastiņš.

Asked whether the Continental Hockey League plans to create something similar to the National Basketball Association, creating the so-called “Disneyland bubble”, the chairman of the board of “Arena Riga” answered in the negative. It is planned that Russian teams will arrive in Riga and play the games in compliance with Latvian laws and restrictions, as well as the guidelines developed by the Continental Hockey League.

“To put it simply, I can say that they will get in the ‘bubble’ and the bubble will leave. The only contact between the hockey players will be on the ice. All risks are minimized so that the athletes do not meet the locals and vice versa. We also understand that

if the situation worsens, it will also affect the course of the games, “said Krastiņš, noting that preparations are underway for such a scenario.

The largest number of new cases of coronavirus in Germany since the beginning of May – Abroad – News

In the past 24 hours, the Robert Koha Institute (RKI) has registered 1,226 new infections, the highest number since the beginning of May.

After that, the number of new infections decreased significantly, but began to increase again at the end of July.

Since the beginning of the epidemic, the peak was reached in early April, when more than 6,000 new infections with the Covid-19 virus were recorded in Germany every day.

A total of 218,519 infections have been confirmed in Germany, but the number of Covid-19-related deaths has reached 9,207, according to RKI estimates.

“This is undoubtedly a cause for concern,” said German Health Minister Jens Span.

He noted that the number of infected has increased as travelers return to the country and events take place.

“We have smaller and larger outbreaks in almost all regions of the country,” Span said.

He called on citizens to remain vigilant in the fight against the pandemic.

In Germany, the number of people infected has risen following the easing of restrictions and the resumption of travel in much of Europe.

In Germany, schools are gradually reopening and the impact on the epidemiological situation is not yet clear.

On Wednesday, children return to school benches in North Rhine-Westphalia, the first German state to make it compulsory to wear masks during school hours.

To stop the spread of Covid-19, Estonia restricts the sale of night alcohol in Tartu County – Abroad – News

From Friday, wholesale of alcohol in catering and entertainment venues in Tartu County will not be allowed from 11 pm.

After two weeks, it is planned to evaluate how effective this step was. If the ban is not extended, it will end on August 31.

According to Prime Minister Jiri Ratass, the government has already begun work to ensure that, in the event of a new outbreak of Covid-19, only local restrictions are introduced as far as possible.

“Over the past week, several new outbreaks have been detected in Tartu and the county and 41 active infections have been confirmed in 14 days, while half of the Estonian counties are not infected at all,” the head of government recalled. “Therefore, we did not consider it necessary to introduce restrictions throughout Estonia and supported the restrictions only in Tartu County.”

At the same time, however, he called on all citizens to be aware of their responsibility to stop the virus from spreading.

“The coming weeks will be crucial for the spread of the virus. In the coming weeks, I want to ask you to avoid crowded, confined spaces, keep a safe distance from other people, wash your hands and stay home if you are ill,” Ratass called. “Only in this way will we be able to bring the situation under control and continue our daily lives without new serious restrictions.”

news, scientists, research, vaccine, obesity, coronavirus, covid-19, 2019-ncov, coronavirus covid-19

At the moment, scientists around the world are developing a vaccine against COVID-19.

The development of the drug is nearing completion: clinical trials are underway in some countries.

However, experts admit that the vaccine will not be as effective for obese people. This is reported by the American media.

The fact is that with excess weight, the patient is highly likely to face complications of diseases and the need for long-term medication therapy.

Also, scientists recalled that other well-known vaccines in the early periods of their existence were not so effective for obese people.

However, experts note: before the start of mass vaccination, the drug against COVID-19 must be tested on different people.

However, overweight volunteers usually do not take part in vaccine clinical trials. But this time it would be logical to make an exception, scientists say.

According to the latest data, about 40 percent of adults in the United States are obese. Doctors warn that being overweight increases the risk of severe COVID-19 in case of infection.
