EIGHT MEMBER OF PAKISTAN TOURING SQUAD TESTS POSITIVE FOR COVID-19
New Zealand’s Ministry of Health said one more member of the Pakistan cricket squad touring New Zealand has returned a positive COVID-19 test bringing the total tally of infections within the party to eight.
The new case, confirmed in Canterbury, was one of three that were under investigation from Tuesday, with the other two still to be determined.
A ministry statement, which did not name the person who returned a positive test, said the team is not allowed to train until the Canterbury health officials are satisfied that any training activities are unlikely to result in transmission of COVID-19.
Two of the eight confirmed cases for COVID-19 have been deemed “historic” and not infectious, with the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) saying those players are in isolation in the facility as the other members of the squad who have tested negative.
