Cricket South Africa aim to isolate players and support staff in a “bio bubble” to minimize their exposure to Coronavirus.
They’re trying their best to maintain the perfect environment to host India for their three T20Is in late August.
However, the tour is most likely to be cancelled because there are still doubts over the COVID-19 situation as it’s less likely to settle down by that time.
“The bio-bubble would be a sanitized cricket biosphere with strict entry standards and limited movement out of his corden”,
said Dr Shuaib Manjra, the team doctor assuring that they’ve worked on a strategy which is cooperated with boards in England and Australia.
“This will require regular testing of all of those within the bubble.
“We want to create a sanitised cricket eco-system that will ensure we account for the entire chain of operations that are sanitised and grant protection to all role-players.
“We have drawn from our colleagues in England and Australia, and we have learned from (soccer’s) La Liga and the Bundesliga.”
Furthermore he said,
“What is the impact of intense physical activity on players infected with Covid-19 when they return to play?
“What happens when one of our players contracts Covid-19, and I have no doubt that many will. When are they safe to return to play and what are the (health) risks to them when they do? We need to understand this.”
