The franchise of the five stripes revealed, from a statement, that one of its footballers is infected by COVID-19.
Atlanta United issued a statement in which he announced that there was a positive for coronavirus within the campus. This, taking into account the recent case at DC United, could delay or affect the resumption of the MLS in Orlando.
The franchise did not disclose the identity of the infected but noted that within the institution, protocol prevention measures were respected to the letter. “In response to the positive test, Atlanta United medical staff continued to work directly with local infectious disease specialists to treat the player, who was asymptomatic and had been observing isolation protocols since receiving the result,” said the club. .
In addition, Major League Soccer reported that this Friday the tests will be held for all players on the campus. Should there be another positive result within Atlanta United, it would be sufficient reason to re-analyze the restart of the tournament within a month.
