The Premier League has confirmed that six people tested positive for coronavirus from three clubs after 748 tests. The affected individuals will now self-isolate for seven days. Clubs and individuals have not been disclosed for data protection reasons.
This news is coming a day after Premier League Shareholders voted unanimously to return to small group training from Tuesday afternoon. The decision was made after an emergency conference call with all 20 clubs on Monday.
With the new development, the chances of starting matches again on 12th June are slim.
“The Premier League is providing this aggregated information for the purposes of competition integrity and transparency. No specific details as to clubs or individuals will be provided by the league and results will be made public in this way after each round of testing.” The Premier League said in a statement.
Some of the precautionary measures undertaken include bi-weekly testing and daily pre-training questionnaire and temperature check.
