Five Barcelona players and two members of the team’s coaching staff ‘tested positive for Coronavirus’ but the club kept the results ‘hidden’
Five Barcelona players two coaches and two members of the team’s coaching staff allegedly tested positive for Coronavirus but the results were kept hidden from the media.
According to Catalan radio RAC1 programme Tú Diràs, five Barcelona players and two members of the coaching staff tested positive for coronavirus after the squad was subjected to tests right at the start of the pandemic.
RAC1 claim that members of the first team squad underwent blood tests and those that tested positive for the virus were asymptomatic.
All five players who were affected have recovered from the virus and are now believed to be back in full training.
However, local media have suggested that club officials are concerned that the quintet could be more susceptible to injury as a result.
The Spanish champions did not disclose the information to the public and are yet to comment on RAC1’s report.
But AS report that Barca believe it would have been the reponsibility of LaLiga to decide whether to make the test results known.
