Two Nyasa Big Bullets Players Hassan Kajoke and Luke Chima who initially showed signs and symptoms of Covid-19 have tested negative and are legible to play, Super League of Malawi says.
However, in a statement issued on Wednesday SULOM said the second set of players (7) are still under isolation until after their period of 14 days lapses and are tested thereafter .
According to the Association, this means that these players are not legible for training and games.
The Kajoke and Chima were among seven other players that tested positive for coronavirus nearly a fortnight ago.
Last week on Monday, Nyasa Big Bullets FC announced that its Covid-19 caseload had jumped from four to eleven following confirmation of nine new cases in the past two weeks ago.
Bullets players, officials and support staff went for Covid-19 tests on Sunday (27 December 2020) after Hassan Kajoke, Ernest Kakhobwe and Stanley Billiat had tested positive last week, a statement posted on the club’s website www.nyasabigbullets.com said.
“Out of the 49 that took the test, seven players and one official tested positive, namely Mike Mkwate, Henry Kabichi, Nelson Kangunje, McFallen Mgwira, Luke Chima, Richard Chimbamba and Yamikani Magombo, the team’s Covid-19 Desk Officer.
“The Club realizes there is still a job to do as we continue tracing and making sure we are all free from the infection. As a team we will do whatever it takes to follow all the necessary measures to prevent further spreading of the virus.
