Has COVID 19 entered the English Premier League?

This year, a number of sports (and other events) have been affected by this global pandemic. Even major sporting events like the 2020 Summer Olympics (alongside the English Premier League) all took a hit.

Word on the street has it Josh Cullen, Issa Diop, and West Ham’s Football manager David Moyes tested positive for COVID 19. This meant Assistant Manager Alan Irvine had to step up and take charge.

Given the absence of two players and their manager the Football team (or should I say soccer, for our international readers) went on to win 5 – 1 against Hull City. The question now is, could the virus now be in the league? Has COVID 19 entered the English Premier League? At this point, no one knows what the future holds. But one hopes and prays for this pandemic to pass as soon as possible.

This year, a number of sports (and other events) have been affected by this global pandemic. Even major sporting events like the 2020 Summer Olympics took a hit. The sensational global event was originally meant to kick off on 24 July of this year. But plans change, a pandemic happened and the dates were moved to Friday, 23 July 2021. The most internationally inclusive sporting event was moved by an entire year. This leaves one wondering, did smaller sporting events like the English Premier League open their doors too early?

As we sit here in our homes waiting for fans to be allowed back into the stadiums. We should ask ourselves: Has COVID 19 entered the English Premier League? Or is this West Ham case just an isolated incident. The entire league now pins its hopes on strict adherence to  Public Health England’s protocols. Alongside Premier League’s guidelines and protocols. To keep up with the gossip follow Hourly Gossip on Twitter. How are other sportsmen doing?
