Another member of the Pakistan squad tests positive for COVID-19 in New Zealand, making the positive cases tally in the team to eight.

An eighth member of Pakistan’s cricket squad has tested positive for Covid-19 as the team undergoes quarantine in Christchurch, New Zealand health authorities said on Wednesday.

“There was one new confirmed case among the squad and a further two members were being investigated, adding to the seven who previously tested positive over the past week”, the health authorities added.

Pakistan team would not be allowed to train together until doctors were confident it would not lead to more coronavirus cases.

It was last week when the Director-general of Health Ashley Bloomfield issued the team with a “final warning” for breaking social distancing protocols at their hotel.

Since then, no further breaches have been reported.
