Cricket South Africa reports seven positive COVID-19 cases
Johannesburg: Seven people at Cricket South Africa have tested positive for novel coronavirus, the cricketing organisation revealed on Monday. CSA had conducted mass testing of over 100 employees throughout the country which included affiliate staff and some of the contracted professional players. The personnel tested also included the franchise training squads that had been assembled after the government announced that non-contact sport could resume in Level 3 of the nationwide lockdown.
“We were definitely going to have people testing positive. Having conducted over 100 tests, seven is actually quite low,” CSA’s acting CEO Jacques Faul was quoted as saying by ‘Sport24’.
Faul, though, did not reveal if the people who have tested positive had any South Africa player among them. “Our medical ethical protocol does not allow us to share info about people that have tested positive,” Faul said. - PTI
