Three test positive for COVID-19 at German soccer club FC Cologne

Corona’s panic is slowly returning to Germany. If all goes well, the German Bundesliga is set to resume on 16 May. Along with the practice, the clubs started the health check-up of the footballers.

Earlier, the German Bundesliga authorities had announced that the game would start on 9 May. The footballers started training a week ago while maintaining a physical distance. But again the Bundesliga has been postponed by a week. It was also decided that health check-ups would be conducted every two or five days at all club footballers, support staff, and all those involved in match organizing. As a result, the Mullers will come on the field with the Corona test.

An official statement from Cologne said three people had tested positive for corona, although none had symptoms. However, after examination, the matter of infection is known. They have now been sent to 14-day home quarantine.

The club, however, did not name anyone affected. However, despite such a situation, the team said, they will continue to practice as planned.

Meanwhile, Christian Seifert, chief executive of the German Football Association, said they were ready to start the league in a crowded stadium. A possible date of May 9 has also been given for this. However, the German government has said that a decision will be made on May 6 on when and how the country’s football will return.
