Men's Football Hull confirms club’s Covid-19 cases

HULL have announced they are the Championship club that has two members of personnel with confirmed cases of coronavirus.

A total of 1,014 players and staff from all 24 Championship clubs were tested over the past 72 hours, and the results reflect an almost identical ratio to those reported in the Premier League’s second wave of testing.

It was announced that the two people were from the same club and Hull have now revealed that is them.

“Medical confidentiality means the names will not be disclosed, and the club asks for this to be respected,” a statement read.

“The duo, who are both asymptomatic and feeling no ill effects, will now self-isolate for seven days – in line with the protocols set out in EFL guidelines – before being tested again at a later date.

“The club will continue to liaise closely with the affected personnel and will make no further comment.”

The EFL had earlier released the results of the tests as the Championship looks to resume the season.

In a statement the EFL said: “The EFL can confirm that 1,014 players and club staff from all 24 Championship Clubs have been tested for Covid-19 over the course of the last 72 hours, with two individuals testing positive from one club.

“Those players or club staff who have tested positive will now self-isolate in line with the guidelines provided by the EFL and only those who have tested negative will be permitted to enter training ground facilities.

“The EFL will continue to make regular and relevant announcements as appropriate in respect of the testing programme to support competition integrity and transparency. No specific details as to clubs or individuals will be provided by the League.”
