All Al Ahly’s Players & Staff Undergo COVID-19 Tests

Al Ahly’s players on Sunday have undergone PCR tests as the Red Devils gear up for the resumption of the domestic competition after a lengthy hiatus.
This came within the framework of preventive and precautionary measures for the club, as well as the directives of the ministries of health, youth, and sports to ensure safety for all.

On his part, Al Ahly director of football Sayed Abdel-Hafiz said that coronavirus swabs have been taken from all the players and technical staff members.

He also affirmed that the club is keen on implementing directives of the ministries of health, sports, and youth.

The Egyptian Football Association (EFA) said in a statement on Saturday that coronavirus swabs will be also taken from technical staff members, adding that clubs will not bear the costs of the tests.

On Sunday, June 15, Egypt’s Sports and Youth Minister Dr. Ashraf Sobhi said that all football activities, including the Egyptian Premier League, have been given the go-ahead to restart on July 25 according to precautionary and preventive measures to curb the spread of coronavirus outbreak.

All sports activities in Egypt were halted since March due to the respiratory disease, which has killed 1575 persons and infected 44, 598 people in the Arab country.

In a press conference, the sports minister said that football’s training sessions would be resumed on June 20, according to precautionary and preventive measures.

He also affirmed that the Egyptian Football Association and all the clubs are responsible for applying all precautionary and preventive measures to prevent the spread of the virus.

“The preparation period to restart the season once again could need three weeks like what happened in England. It also can take less than three weeks as it happened in the other countries, so we have to confirm that the cases are not about football only,” Sobhi said.

“We drew up a detailed guideline suggesting how the sports activities would be resumed, according to precautionary and preventive measures,” the Sports Minister added.
