PV Sindhu in isolation after Covid 19 RT-PCR test shows deviation : India’s star player PV Sindhu has had a serious Covid scare after her RT-PCR test reportedly showed abnormalities after she arrived in Birmingham for the CWG 2022, which begins on Friday. Following the decision, two-time Olympic gold medalist Sindhu was called upon to disassociate herself from the rest of the Indian contingent.
Sindhu had to undergo another test to clear herself. So it was crazy until this decision came. Only after the second negative test, Sindhu was allowed to enter the Games Village, writes The Times of India. The Indian team left Hyderabad for Birmingham on Monday, July 25.
According to a source in Birmingham, a “permanent” level was observed, which is why it was observed. She is part of a 10-member badminton team that left Hyderabad early in the morning on July 25.
Manpreet Singh, captain of the Indian men’s hockey team, was named India’s flag bearer along with PV Sindhu for the opening ceremony scheduled on Thursday evening.
CWG 2022 rules require all athletes to undergo an RT-PCR test for Covid-19, 72 hours before arriving in the UK, and then a new test will be carried out in Birmingham.
A total of 164 athletes will participate in the opening ceremony this Thursday.
