English Football League clubs reported 112 positive tests for coronavirus among workers and players during a week of testing.
A total of 66 EFL clubs have undergone mandatory testing for the first time since November, and it has exposed the degree to which Covid is spreading the game.
League officials and clubs were braced for a high infection rate after more than 50 matches in the EFL were postponed in recent weeks and a large number of cases were registered.
However, the findings indicate that while hotspots exist, with three clubs accounting for 35 cases, many clubs have just one or no positive tests. Prior to their next game, the remaining six clubs will be checked.
Some 2,295 people were tested and the infection rate was 1.7%. In addition, four Premier League games have also been postponed due to Covid.
