Three players of the National Centre of Excellence Scheme have tested positive for Covid-19 at the National Institute of Sports (NIS), Patiala.

This is for the first time that players — one fencer and two judokas — at the NIS have tested positive for Covid ever since the pandemic broke out.

It learnt that the players, following the SOP, had already been undergoing quarantine for 14 days since November 1. The players who tested positive have been identified as Jyotika Dutta, Ajinkya and Pardip Gaikwad.

The players have already been shifted to a private hospital in Patiala. The district health authorities informed that all three players were asymptomatic.

Dr Harish Malhotra, Patiala, Civil Surgeon, said, “The players have already been shifted to a private facility. We have started contact tracing of the three players. We will conduct more tests, in the coming days on the NIS campus.” — TNS
