Kiss confirmed, through their social networks, the postponement of the final three shows of the “End of the Road” tour in the United States. The reason, according to the hard rock band, is the recent pandemic of the new coronavirus (Covid-19).
The presentations would be in Tulsa (Oklahoma), Lafayette (Louisiana) and Biloxi (Mississippi), respectively on March 12, 14 and 15. However, they were rescheduled for October.
Still according to the note, Kiss’s farewell tour, with more dates in North America, continues with an unchanged route. In addition, the period mentioned mentions the season in the Northern Hemisphere, starting in September.
In the post, Kiss said:
“The final three shows of the spring leg of the KISS #EndOfTheRoad Tour are being rescheduled out of an abundance of caution.”
“Tulsa, OK will now be Sunday, October 4th at BOK Center; Biloxi, MS will now be Tuesday, October 6th at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum; and Lafayette, LA will now be Wednesday, October 7th at Cajundome. Tickets will be honoured on the new date. The Fall leg of the tour remains unchanged. The band looks forward to seeing the fans very soon.”
What is the new coronavirus?
Coronavirus is a family of viruses that can cause damage to animals and humans. In people, it can result in respiratory infections ranging from a cold to severe acute respiratory syndromes. The new coronavirus (SARS-Cov-2) causes the disease called Covid-19. It started in China in December 2019.
What are the symptoms?
Covid-19’s symptoms involve fever, tiredness and a dry cough. Also, some patients may experience pain, nasal congestion, runny nose, cough and diarrhea. Some patients may be asymptomatic, that is, be infected by the virus, but have no symptoms. In addition, younger patients are the most likely to show no signs of the disease.
What is the virus incubation period?
Also, according to the WHO, the incubation period is estimated to be 1 to 14 days. That is, the virus would have that time to manifest itself. The most common is the manifestation around five days. But there are people who have no symptoms.
What are the biggest problems and the most vulnerable audiences?
The WHO estimates that 1 in 6 patients may have a worsening of the condition, with serious breathing difficulties. In early March, the lethality rate was 3.5%. But the Ministry of Health suspects that it may be less, as there is underreporting of cases in some countries. The most vulnerable audiences are the elderly and people with chronic diseases (diabetes, high blood pressure and cardiovascular diseases).
