Two players have tested positive for the pandemic coronavirus at Kaizer Chiefs, the Soweto giants announced on their official website on Tuesday afternoon.
The Naturena based outfit conducted preliminary tests last Friday, in line with PSL protocols ahead of all clubs’ return to training in the coming weeks, and two unnamed players have since tested positive.
“Following a series of Covid-19 tests conducted last Friday, two Kaizer Chiefs players’ results have come back positive from the laboratory,” the statement read.
“At the time of doing these tests, players and officials were screened and monitored by healthcare workers and team doctors. None of the people tested showed any signs or symptoms of Covid-19.”
The affected duo will now be placed in self-isolation for the stipulated period of 14 days and will be retested after the isolation period as required.
Meanwhile, Orlando Pirates’ player Ben Motshwari who was the first PSL player to test positive for coronavirus, has since recovered.
