Premier League Announcement-New Record Number of Covid Cases Positive for Players – Soccer Sports

The Premier League announced late Monday on a positive Covid test.

It’s about testing players and staff from 20 Premier League clubs.

These results are from two COVID-19 tests from December 20th to 26th.

Last week, it jumped significantly from 42 positive tests last week to a new record for the 2021/22 Premier League season with 90 positives.

However, today’s announcement sets a new record for 103 new positive cases out of 15,186 tests conducted between December 20th and December 26th.

Much more tests were performed, but this certainly does not mean that more positives were found, but that positive cases were found earlier than before.

So far, the latest increase / record is not a real surprise. Premier League 15 games Although canceled this month, the positive cases of the general public continue to grow with the latest available numbers.

One of the positive trends in the numbers is that the number of Premier League cases more than doubled last week, but this time around 10% in terms of growth.

No new positive cases have yet been reported for Newcastle United players and staff.
