English football club, Hull City has announced that two people have tested positive for COVID-19.
However the club did not state if those who tested positive are players or staff.
According to Hull City, the pair are asymptomatic and feeling no ill effects but would self-isolate for seven days in line with English Football League guidelines. They will both be tested again at a later date.
This comes after reports that Hull City Vice-Chairman, Ehab Allam wrote to the EFL calling for a cancellation of the season.
With the Championship clubs set to return to training on Monday, a total of 1,014 tests were undertaken on players and staff over the past 72 hours, with all but the two at the Tigers coming back negative.
All who tested negative would be allowed to enter training grounds but before going in, they must again complete a screening protocol to detect any symptoms in a manner devised by the club doctor.
Also in the Premier League, an unnamed Bournemouth player has tested positive for COVID-19. He’s one of the two new coronavirus cases discovered by the latest round of top-flight tests taking the overall total of positive results to eight.
