It has now been found that 3 people who are closely associated with Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium have now tested positive for COVID-19.
While IPL 2021 will matches are set to commence on April 9, with the first match being between Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore. It will be held in Chennai’s MA Chidambaram Stadium. However, the next match is to be held between Chennai Super Kings and Delhi Capitals in the famous Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai on April 10. Although 10 staff members of the stadium finally recovered and tested negative for COVID-19 recently, 3 other members have now been found positive for the virus. 2 of these 3 members are part of the ground staff and 1 of them is a plumber at the Wankhede Stadium.
Officials have declared that whoever has tested positive will not be allowed to return home, and will be required to stay back at the stadium itself. And accordingly, the 3 COVID-19 positive staff members of the stadium have been quarantined there already. Although there has been no official update from BCCI on the matter yet, the second wave of the virus has evidently become a scary situation for the teams who will play in IPL 2021.
