Wellington: A seventh Pakistan cricketer tested COVID-19 Positive, confirmed the New Zealand’s ministry of health. The officials are now in the process of identifying close contacts, including the flight contacts.
“The remainder of the results from the squad’s Day 3 swab testing – apart from the six who have already returned a positive result, are negative,” the media release said.
The Pakistanis, who only arrived four days ago, are already on a “final warning” for breaching New Zealand’s tight quarantine restrictions.
All overseas arrivals to New Zealand must spend two weeks in quarantine.
The 53-man squad will undergo further tests on Monday and in the meantime they remain confined to their rooms after permission to train while in isolation was revoked by New Zealand authorities.
