The Premier League has announced that four more people have tested positive for Covid-19 after a third round of testing was completed.

The Premier League has been suspended since March due to the coronavirus pandemic, but is now planning on a return in June with measures put in place to curb the spread of the virus among staff and players.

The first and second round of testing had confirmed cases of coronavirus two and six respectively, and the third round has added four more to the list.

“The Premier League can today confirm that on Monday 25 May and Tuesday 26 May, 1008 players and club staff were tested for Covid-19. Of these, four have tested positive from three clubs,” a league statement said.

“Players or club staff who have tested positive will now self-isolate for a period of seven days.

“Previously, between 19-22 May, 996 players and club staff were tested for Covid-19, of which two tested positive from two clubs. Some 748 players and club staff were tested for Covid-19 on 17-18 May, with six testing positive from three clubs.

“For the fourth round of testing, the number of tests available to each club will be increased from 50 to 60.

“The Premier League is providing this aggregated information for the purposes of competition integrity and transparency. No specific details as to clubs or individuals will be provided by the League and results will be made public after each round of testing.”
