Reports suggest that team South Africa might be facing novel coronavirus threats after they stayed in the hotel with the popular singer Kanika Kapoor. Kapoor tested positive for COVID-19 on Friday.
The singer had returned home from London and had also attended a big gathering in the same hotel where team South Africa were staying before the ODI series which had been later scrapped off.
“She was living there at a time when the South African team was staying in the hotel for the ODI match, which eventually was called off,” said an official.
Following the team’s return to their homeland, the players were asked to go into self-isolation for a couple of weeks and observe the medical protocol very strictly to stop the spread of coronavirus.
