We take care of them and advise them, “Klein said in an interview with the German club’s official media.” I would never put the players at risk, but the question of whether we can train and how I do not evaluate it as a club doctor, but the health authorities “he indicated.

There are clear guidelines from the Robert Koch Institute – the federal agency responsible for disease control and prevention – to treat people who have had contact with infected people . The quarantine is only for category 1 people, not us. It does not affect us “, he pointed.Category 1 corresponds to people who are at higher risk of infection due to living with an infected individual or having come into direct contact with one through bodily fluids, such as during a direct conversation of at least 15 minutes.By conducting trainings under social isolation measures, players of German teams do not fall into this category, which would force them to be quarantined like those infected.The Colony reported on Friday three positives for coronavirus in its team, after the tests they carried out on the squad and coaching staff on Thursday. These three people will spend 14 days in quarantine at their homes.last_img
