Seven members of the Ghana U20 and U17 female national teams have tested positive for the coronavirus, according to a report carried by 442gh.com.
Close to 70 officials and players of the two national teams were involved in the testing and 7 have tested positive for the virus.
Pandemonium has rocked the separate camps with plans thrown in disarray as management is forced to isolate the affected players from the rest of the squad and officials while awaiting a second test on the entire contingent in Cape Coast.
The Ghana COVID-19 team carried out the test on the players in Cape Coast before the squad arrived in their camping base last week after receiving clearance from government officials.
However almost everybody within the teams’ camp is nervous as they are eager to find out their status after the second round of testing.
The Ghana COVID-19 Team officers communicated the results of the testing to officials on Monday and have provided directions on how the situation should be handled.
Nana Akufo-Addo, the Ghanaian President, gave clearance to the Ghana Football Association to camp the ladies ahead of their international assignment when international football resumes. But, the latest development is expected to rock plans of the FA and put their fighting readiness to test.
