It is now certain that Regensburg’s next two point games in the 2nd division have been officially canceled by the German Football League (DFL): the game at VfL Osnabrück on Sunday (March 7th, 2021) and the game against SpVgg Greuther Fürth on Saturday (March 13th, 2021) on that. After eight positive corona tests, the Jahn team has been in group quarantine since Monday.
The health department of the district of Regensburg had initially informed the sports show that “depending on the last contact” the quarantine for some ends on March 11th, for others on March 12th.
How big which group is was not communicated. The time to train with the team again before the game against the promotion candidate would be short anyway.
It is still unclear whether more of the eight infected people than the four previously confirmed were infected with the British coronavirus mutant B.1.1.7. Christian Keller, managing director of SSV Jahn, now expressed a suspicion as to how the many infections came about.
The outbreak could possibly be traced back to a team meeting. “It’s a guess. I cannot explain any other reason. But I do not know. However, we also adhere to the given rules during meetings“, said Keller of the” Mittelbayerische Zeitung “.
Keller: “A life outside the concept”
Keller rated the hygiene concept of the German Football League as excellent. “It is not for nothing that we have not had a single case in eleven months. But there is also a life outside of the concept. All players and coaches also have a private life, they have contacts there, so that a final security can never be established“said the manager.
Because of the positive tests in Regensburg, it was planned for Tuesday DFBCup quarter-finals against Werder Bremen have been canceled. A new date is still open.
