They were all tested on the same day As far as I’m aware. 3days iirc.

Barring those 3 people, if none of the players have got it, and the training ground is limiting access to building and facilities there are cleaned and sanitised there’s no way They can catch it at training can they?
The incubation period can be up to 14 days (the median is estimated at about 5 days) so any number of them could have it.

We need someone with more knowledge of the subject to help us out here. Do those that are asymptomatic still test positive? After being infected how long does it take to show up as a positive test? If the virus can live on a metal surface for 2 to 3 days is it possible that someone could pick it up from a door handle 2 + 1/2 days after the infected person has been removed from the location?

I'm not aiming those questions at you in particular Stu, but more that those are the sort of questions that need answers to make it safe for football to restart.

There has to be a start point. This initial test is that. They’ll be tested regularly and no doubt once the antibody tests begin they’ll have them done aswell.

Most definitely. I’ll ask my tart tomorrow she’ll know more about it working on the frontline in the hospital.

Yes, Dalglish recently tested positive even though he was asymptomatic.

As Ger said previously around 5days but can take upto 2wks

Yes they could.

Seems La Liga are looking to resume on June 8th. In the meantime more soulless German exhibition games this pm :( come on Dortmund
I now watched 1 1/2 Werder matches and it is tedious to watch. Granted, the quality of football in Dortmund is by far better, but Dortmund even more so than Bremen is living of the yellow wall.
One thing is also, there was a minimum amount of home wins in those games so far.


However, I guess for Chelsea* the atmosphere at home games will be the usual one ;-)

* I randomly picked a billionaire backed team, feel free to be offended or amused by that comment

Well the Bundesliga may well be decided in the next couple of hours, Dortmund v Bayern, what shouldve been the pivotal game played in front of nearly 100k supporters being played in front of a few hundred people at most (and Dortmunds home advantage seriously negated)
