Wed 30 December 2020 | 0:39

All the staff and footballers who are positive cases, must be isolated for atleast 10 days.

The premier league said the highest number of the infected players and clubs' staff since weekly testing has begun: 18 new cases tested positive.

English football has been hardly affected by the coronavirus outbreak as no fan can attend the matches And most of the matches are being postponed to prevent more infection spread.

Any staff or player who tested positive is obliged to spend 10 days isolated at home.

Newcastle against Aston Villa, Everton with Manchester city and many of the other matches were called off due to the spread of the virus.

The Etihad campus training was closed: this leaves Manchester city's upcoming matches against Manchester United and Chelsea under a huge doubt.

Here are few statements released by the organization reads:

"The Premier League can today confirm that between Monday 21 December and Sunday 27 December, 1,479 players and club staff were tested for Covid-19

"Of these, there were 18 new positive tests. Players or club staff who have tested positive will self-isolate for a period of 10 days.

"The Premier League is providing this aggregated information for the purposes of competition integrity and transparency. No specific details as to clubs or individuals will be provided by the League and results will be made public after each round of testing."

"Sheffield United can confirm the club recorded a number of positive coronavirus tests after the latest round of testing. Due to medical confidentiality the club will not be revealing the names of those who have been affected.

"The individuals who have tested positive have now entered into a period of self-isolation in accordance with Premier League and government guidelines. Everyone at Sheffield United would like to extend our best wishes to our colleagues and wish them a speedy recovery."
