Bournemouth goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale says he was one of two individuals to test positive for coronavirus in the latest round of Premier League tests.
Medical teams conducted a total test of 996 players and club staff members of the English Premier league were tested in the second round of testing last week for the coronavirus. The other individual from a different club has not been named.
Eight people from Premier League clubs have tested positive after 1,744 tests.
Ramsdale, 22, who had tested negative last Monday, told the Sun he was asymptomatic.
“It’s definitely a shock. I’ve not been in contact with anybody and I’ve now got it,” said the England Under-21 international, who will self-isolate for seven days.
The Bournemouth shorts stopper believes he might have contracted the virus from the supermarket after an initial negative test result.
“When you know you haven’t had it, and you’ve just been following the rules and only gone to the shop, that was obviously scary at first.”
The first round of testing included the positive tests of Watford defender Adrian Mariappa and Burnley assistant manager Ian Woan. Meanwhile premier league is set to begin next month, there is the possible danger of players getting infected with the virus if care is not taken.
