18 cases of Coronavirus in the Premier League


The Premier League Football League said on Tuesday that it had recorded 18 positive cases of the Coronavirus “COVID-19”, the highest number during the week this season in the last round of tests.

1,479 players and crew members were examined between December 21 and 27.

Since the start of the new season, 131 positive cases have appeared in the competition during 17 rounds of Corona examinations.

The Association did not reveal the names of the injured or their clubs but showed that they isolated themselves for ten days.

Manchester City recorded many HIV infections within its squad on Monday, days after it was announced that striker Gabriel Jesus and defender Kyle Walker tested positive, prompting the League to postpone his match against Everton.

City’s training headquarters were closed as part of preventive measures and doubts are about his next match against Chelsea on Sunday, and Chelsea coach Frank Lampard said the match would not take place if conditions were not safe for the two teams.

The City-Everton match is the second postponed Premier League match because of the virus, after Newcastle United’s match against Aston Villa earlier this month.

Arsenal said their Brazilian defender Gabriel had contracted the virus, which would prevent him from playing in the next two matches.

Britain has recorded over 2.3 million cases of COVID-19 and over 71 thousand deaths, and countries closed their borders with Britain last week, fearing the rapid spread of the emerging virus.
