COVID19: Heavy blow for EPL as three Watford members test positive

Watford have released results of three members who tested positive to the virus just moments after Burnley disclosed their assistant manager tested positive for COVID19.

Watford FC have as well stated that they won’t be revealing the names of the patients which included a player and two non-playing staffs in accordance to the club’s medical confidentiality policy.

While we are still hoping for the Premier League to get back into action just like the Bundesliga, these recent update will serve as a major blow to the resumption plans.

Clubs have been allowed to return to training in small groups but resumption appearing to be far-fetched as the Government is all out to make sure the lives of her citizens are protected.

Meanwhile, from a divergent point of view, its likely this might be in accordance to their plans of having the 2019/2020 cancelled considering that the club sit around the relegation zone, with just a point keeping them at the 17th position.

But this in no way is a claim, rather just a thought which can be true and as well false.

Below is the official statement from the club’s website.

Watford Football Club confirms that three people have tested positive for the Covid-19 virus following testing at the training ground over the past 48 hours.

Of those three positive tests, one is a player and two are members of staff. All three have asked that medical confidentiality be respected and, therefore, the club will not be naming those involved.

All three will now self-isolate for seven days – in line with the protocols set out in Premier League guidelines – before being tested again at a later date.

Strict adherence to the Premier League guidelines has ensured the training ground remains virus-free and a safe environment for the players to continue to work.

The club will continue to liaise closely with the affected personnel and there will be no further comment.
