The Spanish Professional Football League (LFP) announced this Sunday that five players, “all of them asymptomatic and in the final phase of the disease,” tested positive for coronavirus, after medical tests prior to the start of training.
“Specifically, between the LaLiga Santander and LaLiga SmartBank clubs, 5 positive cases have been detected in players, all of them asymptomatic and in the final phase of the disease, whose specific identity LaLiga does not know in compliance with the Organic Law of Protection of Data, “said the competition.
At the beginning of May, the Spanish government announced a plan of lack of care for professional soccer players: After medical tests, individual training sessions and then sessions in small groups.
The parties will be authorized in the fourth and last phase, with the condition of not gathering more than 400 people in the place. The League expects “a return to competition in June” behind closed doors.
“From the League, all participants in training have been warned not to relax the recommended sanitary measures,” the competition concluded.
In a process in which the highest temperatures began and Spain gradually came out of the mandatory quarantine, the football teams resumed training last week, always adhering to the health protocol to avoid infections.
Beyond the optimism recently generated by the flattening of the contagion curve and the almost constant drop in the number of ports per day, data such as that of new contagions in football seem to remove the chance of the ball rolling again immediately .
