Hockey players including captain Manpreet Singh, Surender Kumar, Jaskaran Singh, Varun Kumar and goalkeeper Krishan Bahadur Pathak, who reported to the National Hockey Camp in Sports Authority of India’s National Centre of Excellence (NCOE) in Bengaluru along with the team, after a home break, have tested positive for COVID-19.

This was revealed as SAI had made it mandatory for all athletes  to take a rapid COVID-19 test upon arrival. There is a chance that the athletes contracted the virus while travelling from their hometown to Bengaluru.

Initially, all had tested negative in the rapid test.

Since Manpreet and Surender developed COVID symptoms later, they along with other ten athletes who had travelled together were given the Quantitative RT-PCR test on Thursday, and the results were positive.
