The EFL has confirmed that from the latest round of Coronavirus testing, 17 individuals across all three divisions have tested positive for Covid-19.
EFL Announces Latest Coronavirus Testing Figures
Ten Positive Tests From the Championship
1058 tests were conducted on Thursday May 28 and Friday May 30 at all 24 clubs, which returned 10 positive tests from eight clubs.
As a result of the positive test, they will now adhere to Government guidelines and isolate for the recommended period.
From the latest round of testing, Cardiff City has confirmed that a member of staff has contracted the virus.
In the last round of figures, only three staff members tested positive from two clubs.
Testing will continue in the Championship, as they look to finish the remainder of the season.
League Two Returns Positive Tests
Despite having its season curtailed, a small number of tests have been conducted in League Two.
Four clubs took part in the testing. Out of 135 players and staff, seven were concluded as positive.
Furthermore, Northampton Town returned one positive test from their players and staff who took part. Physiotherapist, Ignacio Herrando, will now self-isolate for seven days, the club has confirmed.
Testing Yet to Begin in League One
No tests have taken place yet in League One. This is partly due to no decision being made as to whether the season will continue.
While there is hope that the Championship will be able to resume, League One is still undecided.
Whether the EFL’s second division will return to action is still unclear. Some clubs are in favour of resuming the season, however, the financial situation at other clubs has proved a stumbling block.
