Six Pakistani squad members test positive for Covid-19 in NZ
From the 54 members squad that was sent to New Zealand six members have been tested positive for the Covid 19. Their names have not been revealed yet
The squad was tested 4 time ahead of their departure to New Zealand and tested on their arrival to New Zealand as well and tested negative all times.
Two of the cases are deemed historical and four are new but all six players will move to the quarantine arm of their isolation facility.
New Zealand Cricket said while the positive cases were disappointing, their early discovery showed New Zealand government protocols around touring teams are working.
“Separately, NZC has also been made aware that some members of the Pakistan team had contravened protocols on the first day of managed isolation,” New Zealand Cricket said in a statement. “We will be having discussions with the tourists to assist them in understanding the requirements.
