PL clubs bring in new covid measures for players

New covid measures aimed at stemming the rising number of players coming up positive have now been agreed.

All PL players will need to take a lateral flow test every day in order to get into training grounds as part of new measures agreed earlier on Tuesday.

The Premier League confirmed on Monday there had been a record 42 positives over the previous seven days.

It is the highest figure recorded since Covid testing began as part of Project Restart during the 2019-20 season.

Previously, the most positive tests returned in a week this season was 16 from 16-22 August, when there were 3,060 tests.

The news comes on the same day as a South African gp of 33 years revealed that the early data in the country shown that omricon – as the variant has now been named  – is a mild strain.

And in Britain the deputy prime minister Dominic Raab – after initially saying on TV there were 250 people in hospital was forced to amend the figure to TEN!

Clubs will be concerned that with the amount of publicity the government is generating may give the more wary supporters reason for giving games a swerve in the present circumstances.

And one wonders – if all we are being told to do is spot on – why we are also being allowed to travel freely on public transport and mix in crowds of up to 60,000 at the same time as having to show our vaccination status!

  1. By now I think that most people realise that Covid 19 is another name for the flu. The Bubonic Plague WAS a Pandemic and Covid is most definitely not. We also now realise that the difference between the jabbed and unjabbed is a supposed reduction in the symptoms….. That’s It.
    It is becoming difficult to believe ANY Statement released by this government or repeated by their friends in the media. Our game of football is being used to push an agenda that is yet to be fully revealed by politicians who are meant to be full of knowledge and integrity… But NOTHING could be further from the truth.
    We happen to have one of these wannabe politicians (Brady) on our board making decision’s and voicing her rancid views. Her recent statement regarding personal choice is the polar opposite of the club’s stance regarding the Kick it Out campaign and I would like to see her go sooner rather than later, as I don’t believe many of our supporters can stomach her any longer.

    • Agree 100 pc. Brady is a king sized scar on the club. As for vaccines this is the first where you have needed 3 jabs for some reason. There’s a lot of momey in vaccines and medication. Now I wonder if that’s the reason LOL They say it is only giving 75pc effiacy with two jabs but flu only gives 45 pc. So what’s going on?

  2. Thanks, Hugh, we all need to catch on fast to where this whole thing is going.
    There is a well-known retort… “Don’t P*** on me and tell me that it’s Raining!”
    ….. But that is precisely what they are doing with the combination of government and all forms of media… Worldwide, it seems.
