103 cases of coronavirus in Premier League 

Since last week 103 cases of coronavirus have risen in the Premier League. From December 13-19, 90 players and staff tested positive for the new coronavirus. “The League can today confirm that between Monday, 20 December and Sunday, 26 December, 15,186 COVID-19 tests were conducted on players and club staff,” the Premier League said in a statement on Monday. Out of these, 103 new positive cases of coronavirus have been reported in Premier League.

“Everyone’s safety is a priority and the Premier League is taking every precaution in response to the impact of the Omicron version of COVID-19. The league is back on emergency measures and has tested twice a week on daily side flow and PCR tests of players and club staff, having previously conducted side flow tests twice a week,” the statement read.

In addition to increased testing, the emergency measures used by the Premier League include protocols requiring the wearing of face masks, mandatory social distancing, and limiting treatment time. “The league continues to work with clubs to keep people safe, helping to reduce the risk of COVID-19 in their teams,” the statement said.

The league said it would publish the number of cases in the interest of transparency and integrity of the competition, but added that it would not publish the names of the players and teams in which the diagnosis occurred. On Sunday, the Premier League announced the postponement of the football match between Arsenal and Wolverhampton on 28 December due to a mix of problems related to COVID-19 and injuries to the Wolves’ team.
