English Premier League organizers on Saturday said that two more individuals from two different clubs have tested positive for coronavirus, just three weeks from a proposed restart of the season.
In all, 996 players and club staff were tested over three days last week for COVID-19. “Of these, two have tested positive from two clubs,” said an EPL statement.
“Players or club staff who have tested positive will now self-isolate for a period of seven days.”
In previous tests on May 17 and 18, a total of 748 individuals were tested with six testing positive from three clubs.
“The six … are still within their seven-day self-isolation period” and did not feature in the recent round of testing.
