During the latest testing of COVID-19, Premier League announced that they found out 16 new positive cases over 1,207 players and club staff members.
English Premier League (EPL) is the most profitable league in the world and the most competitive one as well. However, the most attractive competition on the planet is at a high risk of postponing since they have recognized the increase of coronavirus positive cases.
“The Premier League can today confirm that between Monday 9 November and Sunday 15 November, 1,207 players and club staff were tested for COVID-19. Of these, there were 16 new positive tests. Players or club staff who have tested positive will self-isolate for a period of 10 days,” the operation of the competition wrote in a statement.
Accidentally, the number was the highest record of coronavirus positive cases since the EPL officially applied the pre-match testing process. Beforehand, the highest record of COVID-19 positive cases belongs to week 10 when the authority of the league announced the number of 10 positive cases.
Raheem Sterling, the star of EPL, also suffered from coronavirus during his training with the national team. Manchester City’s star will be absent in the next 10 days before going through further testing. Earlier this year, EPL was the last competition in Europe which declared postponing due to the effect of COVID-19.
England in general was also the most vulnerable nation in Europe that struggled with COVID-19. The arrival of the Moderna vaccine and the Pfizer vaccine can be the only solution for the most attractive competition of European soccer. Instead of talking about the championship battle, let’s think about coronavirus and how to attack it. England was suffering, and so does their league of soccer.
