The Premier League has confirmed one fresh coronavirus case from its latest round of testing. In the most extensive round of testing to date, one person has been found to be carrying the virus
  • It was the seventh round of testing since the teams began training in which 1213 players and club staff were tested on Monday and Tuesday.

The first six rounds of COVID-19 testing returned 13 positives and 6,261 negatives with other players having recovered from the virus.

While not confirming the team or the player affected, the results come a day after Manchester United canceled their friendly clash against Championship Side Stoke City after manager Michael O’Neill tested positive for COVID-19.

The sides were due to meet at United’s Carrington training center but the match was immediately abandoned without kicking a ball when the Northern Irishman tested positive, with United insisting none of their squad came into contact with him.
