4 Chelsea players tested positive for COVID-19

The pre-season training of coach Lampard and his students were affected because many members of the main squad were positive for the corona virus.

Before the Premier League entered the new season, club members and coaching staff had to test Covid-19. Chelsea confirmed their four players have been quarantined after the test.

Chelsea’s plans to prepare for the new season are being turned upside down as many players have been found positive for the corona virus. Daily Mail revealed that at least four players are being quarantined by the West London club to avoid infecting the rest of the team of coach Frank Lampard. According to The Times, the identities of these players have not been revealed.

Chelsea players have been on vacation in many parts of the world after the season ended. This is the main cause of infection by some people.

A series of Premier League clubs such as Sheffield United, West Ham, Brighton also discovered nCoV infected players after the test last weekend. 14 cases in 12 different teams had to be quarantined after the break.

Chelsea is a team that is active in the transfer market this summer. Coach Lampard has just welcomed the appearance of left-back Ben Chilwell. The Blues spent 55 million euros to complete the deal with Leicester City, thereby turning Chilwell into the most expensive defender in the history of Stamford Bridge.

In the next few days, Chelsea is expected to welcome another rookie in the defense, Thiago Silva. The Brazilian midfielder is preparing to be in London to conduct a medical examination, before he signed on to a contract with a term of 2 years.

Before that, Chelsea had two quality additions to the public goods, striker Timo Werner (53 million euros) and midfielder Hakim Ziyech (40 million euros).

The Daily Mail confirmed that Chelsea’s preparations for the new season were mixed after a few names were quarantined.

COVID-19 in Japan: Marathon Running on App

The organizers of the annual marathon in Nagoya city (Japan) have made a special organization plan without having to gather in large numbers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

As planned, the Nagoya marathon for women and the Nagoya City marathon will take place on March 8, attracting about 20,000 participants. However, due to the outbreak of COVID-19 across the country, the organizers were forced to cancel both tournaments.
In order to reduce the frustration of the athletes, but still ensure the health and safety for everyone, the organizers offer a plan to organize the creative prize without having to gather in large numbers to avoid the spread of COVID. -19. Accordingly, they created two applications that allow the athletes alone to complete the distance of 142.95 km through online tracking.

Instead of running on a predetermined route, athletes can choose any venue they want, as long as they maintain an appropriate social distance. The above official insisted. Runners are not allowed to run in groups.

Two applications are given by the organizers: one for those who want to finish the race in one run and the other allows participants to extend the running time for several days. Runners must complete the run between March 8 and May 31. The app will help measure and confirm their achievement.

The COVID-19 pandemic broke out, leading to a series of canceled sporting events in Japan, including the Tokyo Marathon, one of the six largest running events in the world, under the World Marathon Majors system, in addition to Boston, New York, Chicago, London and Berlin. The organizers have canceled the registration of 38,000 amateur athletes, which are scheduled to take place on March 1. Although no refunds will be issued after the event is canceled, they will have slots for the 2021 Marathon.

Even the largest sports festival on the Olympic Games in Tokyo has to be postponed to 2021. To host the Olympics, Japan has to spend about 13 billion USD. After having to postpone the calendar a year due to the impact of the COVID-19 epidemic, the country is expected to spend another $ 3 billion.
