Two cases of Covid-19 detected during a festival in Toulouse; the 1300 participants invited to be tested
“None of these cases present to date a serious factor”, specifies the ARS by informing that the two people, vaccinated, remain likely to transmit the virus.
We hoped that all this would be a thing of the past now, and yet. In Toulouse, the regional health agency of Occitanie warns in a press release about a potential “Chain of contamination” at Covid-19. A possible cluster that dates back more than a week. From October 8 to 10 took place the festival Hola Cuba, which brought together dance and music aficionados from the Caribbean island. Friday 8, a first evening was organized at Bascala de Bruguières, a room located north of Toulouse. Saturday 9 and Sunday 10, the festivities moved to the Palladia hotel in Toulouse.
Problem for the organizers, the two people carrying the virus followed the festival throughout the weekend and carried the virus to both Bruguières and Toulouse. 1,300 people are therefore affected by this chain of contamination.
The organization of the festival indicates that it has strictly adhered to the protocols and sanitary pass controls and specifies that the two positive people are vaccinated. “None of these cases present to date a serious factor”, confirms the regional agency of Health Occitanie in its press release.
The Occitanie ARS invites all those who participated in the festival to be tested, to apply the barrier gestures to the letter, and to isolate themselves if symptoms appear. In addition, the agency calls on all participants to send an email to [email protected] to benefit from free screening, vaccinated or not.
