Three Bulawayo City Players Contract Coronavirus

Three Bulawayo City Football Club players have tested positive for coronavirus after the football team went for coronavirus tests in preparation for the resumption of the domestic top-flight league.

The club undertook Covid-19 Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) tests on October 15, 2020, and were later informed by the City’s Department of Health Services that three of their players had tested positive.

The football team announced in a statement released by its Marketing and Media Office that the trio is in isolation as prescribed by health officials. Read the statement in part:

From the on-going exercise we are reliably informed by the City Department of Health Services, that three tested positive and have been secured.

In line with public health information data protection, and data privacy having been taken into consideration, we await receipt of the official Test results. We therefore are unable to disclose the names of the affected individuals. We have encouraged affected individuals to follow local protocols by self-isolating and working with health officials.

As Bulawayo City Football Club players remain at the centre of what we do, and stand for as a Club. We shall continue to practice Covid-19 protocols as guided by PSL regulations and emphasize mask wearing at all times, social distancing, washing of hands with soap and alcohol based detergents at our premises.

Meanwhile, the club has sent secretariat staff on self-isolation and are to work from home with immediate effect as a precautionary measure.

This comes when the coronavirus curve in the country has been flattening in the recent past. As of 20 October 2020, Zimbabwe had 244 Active Cases, 8187 total known Cumulative Cases, 7692 total Recoveries and 233 total Deaths.
