FC Bayern is hit by the corona virus. After many positive cases, the health department could even impose group quarantine.
Munich – The corona virus * is at Bayern *. Four players were infected with Covid-19 this year. Most recently, it met Thomas Müller at the controversial Club World Cup and on Thursday Benjamin Pavard. Now the health department intervenes.
The infections were confirmed on January 29th. Both stars have now recovered and should be available to coach Hansi Flick *, who recently had a dispute with expert Karl Lauterbach *, for the Bundesliga guest game in Frankfurt on Saturday. On Tuesday, the German record champions * will travel to Rome – the round of 16 of the Champions League against Lazio is coming up. It is suddenly uncertain whether these games will even come about.
FC Bayern: health department investigates corona cases – group quarantine threatens
The request has not yet come.
“A health department basically has the right to quarantine a company or association; the necessary measures are decided and carried out depending on the result of the investigations,” it said literally in a statement. “In the present case, the investigation continues.”
The most important question is: Did the infected players have any contact with people who are considered Category I contacts? This category includes people who have been in contact with the infected person for longer than 15 minutes without a mouth and nose protection. It now needs to be clarified whether this applies to all or part of the teammates and whether they have to be quarantined. “This procedure is used for every infected person, regardless of their profession, club or league membership,” writes the Munich Health Department.
FC Bayern is fighting coronavirus and is being “tested every day”
Since the infection of Thomas Müller * has been “tested every day” at the club, said Flick at the press conference on Friday. “We have a good hygiene concept.” Nevertheless, in view of the positive tests, even more caution is required. “We make sure that we stick to things even more and look at them even more conscientiously. Just wear a mask, keep your distance, “said Flick and added:” I think we’re doing pretty well. ”
In the Bundesliga, only one team, TSG Hoffenheim, has been quarantined so far, albeit voluntarily. In the 2nd Bundesliga there were two such measures by the authorities at Erzgebirge Aue and in the preseason at Dynamo Dresden. If there are no further positive tests, FC Bayern should be able to avoid group quarantine. (ck) * tz.de is part of the Ippen-Digital network
