In the shadow of the Bundesliga's attempts to resume activity in the next few days, PT Cologne announced over the weekend that three of its members had been diagnosed with the Corona virus. At the same time, the team rushed from tenth place in the table that training continues as usual and that the team continues to prepare for the resume of the season. "The three people who were found positive were sent for isolation and their names were not released for privacy reasons," the group's statement said; "However, the group's training is in order and according to all the hygiene and health laws set on April 6."
A few hours earlier, and regardless of P. Cologne's contagion, the German government lowered the measure of optimism when it announced that the decision to renew the Bundesliga would be postponed for at least one week. Chancellor Angela Merkel reported that only on May 6 there will be a hearing on the return of sporting events to activity and said; "It's very important that we stay disciplined and follow the health guidelines."
Remember, the German league was determined to be the first major league to return to activity, after the league leaders made it clear how economically important it was for the clubs themselves and the future of German football.
As a result, the Bundesliga teams returned to practice in April with many precautions, while at the same time a detailed plan to return the league to non-crowded activity was completed to complete the remaining nine cycles of the season.
This week, the league manager also confirmed that extensive corona testing has already begun for players from the first two leagues. In the most optimistic scenario, the Germans hoped to resume the season on May 9, which will no longer happen, and now the hope is that the Cologne case will not prevent it from happening on the 16th or 23rd.
