The Spanish Society of Epidemiology recommends “the cup final in autumn”

first_imgThe Copa del Rey final open or closed? Is it good that it is played in the middle of summer, in late July or early August, in Seville? These questions to which Luis Rubiales, the president of the Spanish Football Federation, tries to answer almost every day, are truncated when the Spanish Society of Epidemiology comes into play. Because his forecasts do not match at all with those that the federal entity manages, or wants to manage. They recommend that the final of the Copa del Rey between Real Sociedad and Athletic Bilbao be played in autumn, not summer.This was stated by Pere Godoy, the president of the Spanish Society of Epidemiology, in an interview given on Radio Euskadi. “I would recommend that it be played in the autumn, because we believe with the research done that everything that involves large crowds of people, as in sports events, it would be prudent to wait until well past the summer, since in May and June there will be a high percentage of the population that will be susceptible to this disease, “he explains. Godoy, a medical specialist in Preventive Medicine and Public Health, assures that society should be forgetting any collective event that brings together many people. “The best thing is to forget until well past the summer of all that are crowds like those of music concerts, sporting events or political rallies. Even to the beach I think we shouldn’t go en masse. And the children’s classes we must forget until after the summer. It is necessary to delay everything is the maximum if we do not want to go backwards ”. Remember that the UEFA calendar sent to the different federations places the final on August 5, something that does not fully convince both Basque clubs, and that seems complicated that it can be given in the current context. Until September-October there does not seem to be a good date for the dispute of that final.last_img
