The Premier League which is expected to resume next month might have suffered another set back as it has been confirmed that four players or staff members have tested positive for the COVID-19. This was after 1,008 persons were tested after the third round of mass testing was carried out on Monday and Tuesday.
The premier league confirmed this in a statement yesterday. This was after the clubs met and decided that the league will resume next month. The results simply means there are now 12 positive cases since the Premier League started testing players, coaches and staff members.
The statement noted that the fourth round will take place on Thursday and Friday, with up to 60 people from each club tested for the virus. Players or club staff who have tested positive will now self-isolate for a period of seven days, the statement further read.
The league was suspended weeks ago following the outbreak of the dreaded COVID-19, which currently has no cure.
