Coronavirus: Watford’s Mariappa Confirms Positive Test

Watford defender Adrian Mariappa says he is one of three people who tested positive for coronavirus at the English club.

He told the Telegraph: “It’s quite scary how you can feel absolutely fine and not really have left the house, and yet still get the virus.

“If it wasn’t for the fact I had gone back to training and had this test, then I’d never have found out that I had the virus.”

On Tuesday, it was announced there had been six positive tests across three Premier Leeague clubs.

The Premier League has been suspended since 13 March because of the Covid-19 pandemic, with 92 fixtures remaining.

The league had previously identified 12 June for matches to possibly start again but there is now an expectation this will need to be pushed back.
