The Bundesliga has been back in business for a few days to end the current 2019/2020 season. Until the government approved the permission for ghost games, the clubs had to implement a far-reaching hygiene concept that also included antibody tests. Now these tests seem to have confirmed that there were two more positive corona cases at 1. FC Köln.
The antibody tests carried out on the players of 1. FC Köln provide information about two other corona cases at the billy goat club. In the meantime, a total of four players from the club have survived the infection with the highly contagious virus. These new cases were confirmed by FC managing director Alexander Wehrle. As Wehrle said, this is the result of extensive antibody tests that the players have to endure in the course of the hygiene concept. “The time cannot be determined. I can only say that these two affected players remained symptom-free, ”Wehrle told the newspaper“ Express ”. Before the restart of the Bundesliga, Cologne had three positive corona tests. 2 players and a supervisor were affected.
At that time, the Bundesliga team had announced that the trio, which had tested positive, had undergone a 14-day domestic quarantine. “We already had two players who tested positive and tested negative five days later. In addition, antibody tests have shown that a total of four players already have antibodies – two more besides the positive ones, ”Wehrle gives more details in the newspaper“ Express ”.
