It is the talk of this beginning of summer of the year 2021. With almost 100% of those over 60 with a dose of the vaccine against COVID-19, and with the arrival of heat, the end of mandatory face masks on the street (in no case in public interiors) it could be very close in Spain.

But the how remains to be defined. And in that planning a risk flies overhead: that we have ended up so fed up with that measure, that over time we do not even maintain it as the good and healthy habit that it is in certain contexts.
