Norwich footballer now ‘confusingly’ tests negative
Good news for the Canaries.
On Tuesday, on the latest episode of the Beautiful Game podcast, Norwich City sporting director Stuart Webber confirmed that the player in question has now tested negative for coronavirus:
Luckily the player in question is completely fine, 100%, there’s nothing wrong with him
He’s actually done an independent test with our doctor which has come back negative, which is confusing, so now he’s got to have a third test to see if that comes back negative and to check if he’s got antibodies which could prove that he has had it in the past but doesn’t have it now.
The main thing is that he’s healthy and the rest of the group are healthy, but it’s a good wake-up call. We’ve done all of these measures and one of us could still get it, that’s quite scary really.
“He has actually done an independant test with our doctor which has come back NEGATIVE‼️”
