Singer Tim Bendzko supports the corona experiment of University Medicine Halle by holding a simulated concert

The future of the cultural and sporting event industry and the continued existence of professional sports, which are rich in tradition but less blessed with TV revenues, is bleak. A return to large-scale concerts and handball games in an arena seems nearly impossible due to the risk of becoming infected with the corona virus. This can mean lights out for creative artists and professional teams like the handball players of SC DHfK from Leipzig. The research project RESTART-19 is conducting an evidence-based and scientifically designed study to investigate the risks of holding a major event at an indoor venue.
