Premier League confirming latest very impressive results from testing after restart
The Premier League have released the results from the latest round of virus testing.
A total of 1.973 players and staff were tested between Monday 29 June and Sunday 5 July
The Premier League confirming not a single positive result amongst the 1.973 tested.
The latest news means that now there have been an overall total of 16,280 tests on Premier League players and staff, with only 19 positive results for the virus.
Very encouraging that numbers are so low and credit to the organisation and discipline of those involved.
Obviously in an ideal world there would be zero positives throughout this testing process but the figures absolutely support the decision to complete the 2019/20 Premier League season.
Including this latest twelfth round of testing results, the most recent nine rounds have seen 13,528 tests and only seven positives.
This highlights that whilst we have seen the odd idiot Premier League player acting irresponsibly and showing no respect for his club, fans and teammates, the overwhelming majority have been doing everything they can to ensure they stay virus free.
The eight rounds of testing so far showing:
First round was 748 tests and 6 positive.
Second round being 996 tests and 2 positive.
Third round was 1,008 tests and only 4 of them positive.
Fourth round was 1,130 tests and 0 positive.
Fifth round was 1,197 tests and 1 positive.
Sixth round was 1,195 tests and 0 positive.
Seventh round was 1,213 tests and 1 positive.
Eighth round was 1,200 tests and 2 positives.
Ninth round was 1,541 tests and 1 positive
Tenth round was 1,829 tests and 1 positive
Eleventh round was 2,250 tests and 1 positive
Twelfth round was 1,973 tests and 0 positive
