Medical tests done these days at First and Second Division clubs have determined that there are five asymptomatic positive cases for covid-19. The League confirmed yesterday that they are footballers who are in the final phase of the disease, without specifying more for data protection.
The intention of the League when drafting the protocol was precisely that medical tests detect asymptomatic cases to prevent a phase of infection from being generated in other colleagues. With those who have tested positive, the steps to be followed are the same as with any positive case for covid-19: the player must start a quarantine process at home, following the individual work sent by the club, and in the coming days will be reviewed again. He will not be able to return to training at the club’s facilities until a negative result is obtained. In addition, the League offers the possibility that the people with whom the footballer lives can also pass the coronavirus check-up.
After a few days of activity in all the sports cities, the League has reminded us of the importance of not relaxing the recommended health measures.
Earrings from Germany and England
The resumption of football in Spain will follow in the footsteps of Germany, which has had players training for weeks, first individually, as here, and later in small groups. Now the teams are already facing the final stretch of preparation to start playing on Friday. But the Bundesliga schedule has already blown up because two positive cases were detected in Dynamo Dresden, in the second division, which forced the entire team to be quarantined. There had been no public positioning of the institutions yesterday and it has only been confirmed that the matches against Hannover and Greuther Fürth will be postponed.
In parallel, England is looking at the steps that the leagues have been taking in Spain and Germany and today has decided its plans to end the competition. The forecast is that the Premier League will allow the return to training from Monday 18 May and concentrate the league final on a series of neutral fields that have yet to be decided.
