The revelers are not there. Saturday June 26, 2021, the organizers of the free test evening planned in Paris at the Moulin Rouge machine and at Cabaret Sauvage from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. announced its postponement for lack of volunteers. This was scheduled before the big reopening of nightclubs on July 9.

The test night postponed to a “later date”

“The number of volunteers recruited is not sufficient to allow the study to bring, in the current epidemic context, conclusive results, despite the rapid and important efforts of all the people and partners involved in the project” , say the organizers.

The experiment will therefore have to be held at a later date.

The “Night returns” project is led by a team of scientists, in particular from the AP-HP and night professionals. The study, based on the test concert held at the end of May in Bercy, wishes to “prove that the vaccination of participants in such an event makes it possible to control the risk of transmission during a night in a disco without a mask, without social distancing or gauge ”.

Strict conditions to participate

To participate in this evening with the unprecedented program which was to bring together the djs Laurent Garnier, Étienne de Crécy, Pedro Winter, Kiddy Smile, Chloé, Bambounou, Mad Rey, Roni and Rag, the conditions were strict.

Only vaccinated people, aged between 18 and 49, could participate in the experiment. To be chosen, it was necessary to be able to justify a complete vaccination on the date of the event. That is to say to be at d + 14 of the second dose if one has been vaccinated with doses of Pfizer, AstraZeneca or Moderna and at +14 weeks if the dose received was a Janssen.

In a patient who had Covid-19, it was necessary to be at d + 14 of an injection. Participants had to live in Île-de-France and be affiliated with Social Security or beneficiary of a security scheme.

The volunteers were to be divided into two groups, 2,200 participating in the evening in one of the two Parisian clubs and 2,200 staying at home.

Saliva tests had to be performed before and after the experiment.
