The Premier League confirmed four positive cases for COVID-19 on Wednesday after the last round of tests, a total of 1,008 tests that took place between May 25 and 26, according to the British competition. The four positives come from three different clubs. One of them, Bournemouth goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale confirmed that he had tested positive last Tuesday. Of the other three infected, his identity is unknown. Thus, after four rounds of testing, the four new positives bring the number of cases in the Premier League to 12 . As a result, the English league has said that it will increase the number of tests per club from 50 to 60. This measure comes after this Wednesday, the 20 clubs that make up the Premier voted in favor of resuming the competition and that the teams can train in a second phase with more players per session together, in the same way as in Spain. The Premier hopes to restart the 2019-20 campaign during the month of June, still with 92 games remaining between all days, after the British government said sporting events could be held behind closed doors. This Thursday the competition clubs will continue to meet to try to get closer to the return.
