5 hockey players test positive at SAI camp



Hockey players Manpreet Singh , Surender Kumar, Jaskaran Singh and Varun Kumar, who reported for the national hockey camp in the Sports Authority of India’s National Centre of Excellence (NCOE) in Bengaluru, have tested Covid-positive.

Since they had travelled together, there is a likelihood that they contracted the virus while travelling to Bengaluru.

All five tested negative in the rapid test. However, since Manpreet and Surender began to display Covid symptoms, they along with 10 other athletes were given the RT-PCR test on Thursday, and the five have been found to be Covid-positive.

Manpreet said he was happy that testing of athletes had been made mandatory. He added that he was doing fine and hoped to recover soon.
