All six Indian males’s hockey workforce players, who’ve examined positive for coronavirus, have been shifted to a multispeciality hospital in Bengaluru, the Sports Authority of India (SAI) knowledgeable on Wednesday morning.
Earlier, striker Mandeep Singh was hospitalised late on Monday night time, owing to a dip in his oxygen degree.
SAI has now stated that as a precautionary measure, they shifted captain Manpreet Singh, Jaskaran Singh, Surender Kumar, Varun Kumar and Krishnan B Pathak to SS Sparsh multi-speciality hospital — the place Mandeep is already hospitalied — on Tuesday afternoon.
“The decision to hospitalise them was taken so as to ensure that the players were attended to at all times and could be given the best possible treatment,” stated SAI.
All six athletes are in good well being and recovering properly, it added.
The players had been identified with COVID-19 following their arrival on the SAI’s National Centre of Excellence (NCOE) for the hockey nationwide camp which started on August 4.
“I am self quarantined on the SAI campus and I am very happy with the way SAI authorities have handled the situation,” Manpreet had earlier stated. “I am very happy that they made the testing of athletes mandatory. That proactive step helped in identifying the problem right in time. I am doing fine and hope to recover very soon.”
