RAC1': There were up to seven positives for COVID-19 at Barça

RAC1' reports that up to seven people, five footballers and two members of the coaching staff, tested positive in the first tests carried out in Barcelona, all of them asymptomatic, at the beginning of the pandemic, weeks before the beginning of the training sessions.

Important revelation offered by 'RAC1's 'Tú Diràs' program. Barcelona would have had up to seven positives for COVID-19 in the first tests that were done at the beginning of the pandemic, weeks before training began.

The sources claim that the tests were undertaken at the beginning of the pandemic as bloods tests, which is when the club realised it had up to five players, and two members of the technical staff all tested positive.

This clashes with the official version of both the club and LaLiga, as they reported that the team had not had any positive cases.

All of the cases were reportedly asymptomatic and continued normal life at home. After more than two months since the pandemic, they would all be fully recovered by now, which is why they were able to train from day one.

The source also said that there is some concern among the club's medical services that these five players are more prone to injury because of the virus. 

The team is still preparing the return to the competition, which they will do in Mallorca. In the session of this Monday could reincorporate Samuel Umtiti, who had been out through injury.
