Covid-19: Premier League Confirms Four new Positive Cases in latest testing

The Premier League has confirmed that four players or staff members have tested positive for coronavirus from the latest round of testing.

The third round of testing saw 1,008 tests carried out and the four positive results mean there have now been 12 positive cases since testing was started in the Premier League.

Premier League clubs on Wednesday voted unanimously to return to contact training, including tackling, as the top-flight moved a step closer to a resumption.

Players and staff will continue to be tested twice a week, with the capacity increased from 50 to 60 tests per club for the fourth round of testing.
