Atlético MG and Palmeiras, on September 28, in Mineirao, for the second leg of the Libertadores semi-final, have good chances to attract fans into the stadium. Optimism goes back to Jackson Machado, the health minister for the city of Belo Horizonte.
In an interview with Rádio Itatiaia, the secretary commented on the new general ban after the Test events – Atlético’s matches against River, and Cruzeiro’s matches against Confianca.
– It is very likely that we will have good news, yes, for the next Libertadores match against Atlético. And why not say, for other matches of Cruzeiro and perhaps America, if you decide to have an audience – he said.

In 2020, with the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic, the public was banned by the authorities. As vaccination progressed, the city of Belo Horizonte authorized the return of fans to the stadiums in Gallo’s duel against River Plate, at the hands of the Libertadores, last Wednesday.
A protocol was created with a series of requirements, but the standards were not respected. There was a gathering of people in and out of Mineirão. Many of them did not wear masks.
Adjustments were made to Cruzeiro’s match against Convienza, last Friday, for the Series B of the Brazilians. A barrier has been set up to prevent fans without tickets from entering the stadium. Once again, the test failed, resulting in fans being banned from the capital’s stadiums.
The city council will now verify the data of the fans who went to Mineirao in the two matches. The goal is to find out how many people may have covid-19.
– We cannot forget that crowding is the risk factor. So, we need to do this data exchange. But this is a cross that the computer makes very easily. By crossing 18 thousand participants in the game with patients with a CPF number, the computer does this in a matter of hours. We won’t need ten or fifteen days for this analysis, said the secretary.
