One person in the English Premier League tested positive for the new coronavirus, the top tier of English football announced on Thursday.

“The Premier League can today confirm that on Monday 15 June and Tuesday 16 June, 1,541 players and club staff were tested for COVID-19. Of these, one person has tested positive,” the EPL said on its website.
