Tokyo Olympic Athletes’ Village four days before the opening day. Two players who lived here were diagnosed with Corona 19 yesterday. This is the first time an athlete has been infected in the athletes’ village.
Here, the South African Football Association announced that three people, including two representative players and one video analyst, who moved to the village, have been confirmed with Corona.
All of them tested negative when they entered the athletes’ village on the night of the 14th, but they tested positive on the evening of the next day, the 15th, and all of the national team is currently in quarantine.

“I think the situation is well controlled. Even if there is a confirmed case, the person involved will be quarantined and all contacts will be traced.”
Previously, Olympic table tennis gold medalist Yoo Seung-min was the first member of the committee to be quarantined after being tested positive at the airport.
Yoo said, “Before leaving the country, I tested negative twice, and had been vaccinated twice.”
