Brazilian match called off after 14 players test positive for COVID-19
Published in Ahram Online on 12 - 07 - 2020

Authorities cancelled one of southern Brazil's biggest footballing derbies less than 24 hours before kick-off on Saturday after 14 members of one side tested positive for COVID-19.
The Santa Catarina state championship restarted on July 8 with four games, including Chapecoense's 2-0 home win over Avai.
The return match was due to kick off on Sunday at 4 p.m. but was cancelled on the orders of the state's Health Secretariat.
"One of the teams had 14 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and it is necessary for all the players to follow the necessary protective measures," it said in a statement.
It did not say which side had produced 14 positive tests but globesporte.com, a Brazilian website, said it was Chapecoense. The club would not comment on the report.
Santa Catarina state has recorded 42,026 cases of the new coronavirus, with 485 deaths.
So far, 71,469 people have died in Brazil, more than any other country outside the United States.
