Bad Bunny‘s P FKN R event in Puerto Rico this month closed up a fantastic 2021. On December 10 and 11, 80,000 people packed the Estadio Hiram Bithorn for what was expected to be a fantastic concert. All spectators were required to present confirmation of COVID-19 immunization or an official Vacu-Id supplied by CESCO Digital to attend the concert, which was produced by Noah Assad Presents and Move Concerts. There was also a required mask requirement, and anybody who refused would be kicked out of the event and fined $100.
Despite all these steps, it appears that the P FKN R concert led to the current increase of COVID-19 cases in Puerto Rico, which saw the number of positive cases inflate by 4,600 percent last month. According to The New York Times, at least 2,000 people tested positive after the event, accounting for 2.5 percent of the total attendees. While many individuals observed the mask regulations at the concert’s entrance, many removed them once they arrived at their seats, according to Billboard. They went on to say that the show’s staff was loose with the mask mandate within the venue.
Bad Bunny himself had tested positive in the end of 2020, resulted in him missing his appearance at that year’s American Music Awards.
