The concert took place in Germany.
Approximately 1, 500 participants in a new study called 'Restart 19' have attended the concert of Tim Bendzko in Leipzig, Germany, to gauge how a concert or sporting event might spread the Coronavirus.
Armed with hospital face masks and bottles of fluorescent sanitizer, concertgoers were asked to regularly disinfect their hands, so scientists and researchers could pinpoint where people frequently touch surfaces and pose risk for spreading the virus.
Researchers from the University Medical Centre in Halle also gave participants contact tracers to help track distance between concertgoers and crowded areas.
"I am extremely satisfied with the discipline displayed by the participants," said Stefan Moritz, who headed the study at a news conference.
"I was surprised how disciplined everyone was in wearing masks."
Apparently we can expect the results of the study in four to six weeks.
