El GP de las Américas se complica: Austin declara el estado de emergencia

En una comparecencia que tuvo lugar por la tarde, Steve Adler, el alcalde local, informó de las medidas adoptadas para tratar de minimizar los riesgos de propagación del COVID-19, el virus que ya obligó a cancelar la carrera de MotoGP del Gran Premio de Qatar, que este fin de semana se celebra en Losail, y a retrasar el de Tailandia, que inicialmente figuraba como la segunda parada del calendario y que se ha reprogramado para principios de octubre.

Adler también informó de la cancelación del South by Southwest, el festival de música más grande de Texas y uno de los de más renombre del país, que debía llevarse a cabo entre el 13 y el 21 de este mes, dos semanas antes de la prueba de MotoGP.

“Basándome en las recomendaciones de nuestro delegado público de salud y nuestro director de salud, tenemos que declarar la ciudad de Austin en estado de emergencia y, junto a ello, acabo de emitir una orden que cancela el festival South by Southwest”, convino Adler, que de esta forma trata de evitar que el número de personas contagiadas en Texas (19 en el instante en el que se escriben estas líneas, pero ningún positivo en Austin) aumente lo menos posible.

La declaración del estado de emergencia en la ciudad está asociada a un serie de medidas que de forma inevitable hacen dudar de la viabilidad de la celebración de la carrera en Austin.

Entre ellas, la prohibición de cualquier evento que pueda reunir a más de 2500 personas, a menos que los organizadores puedan garantizar al Departamento de Salud que cuentan con planes de contención de enfermedades contagiosas.

El pasado jueves, Dorna, el promotor del Mundial de MotoGP, hizo pública una nueva versión del calendario. Carmelo Ezpeleta, su ejecutivo de mayor rango, reconoció que la compañía hará todo lo que pueda para celebrar el mayor número de carreras posible, aunque eso suponga alargar la temporada hasta Navidad.

Desde Argentina, los promotores de la cita que debe disputarse en Termas de Río Hondo el 19 de abril, dos semanas después de la de Austin, se apresuraron hace unos días a confirmar que tienen toda la intención de albergar la prueba.
