Orlando Pirates midfielder tests positive for Coronavirus

South Africa club Orlando Pirates have confirmed that midfielder Ben Motshwari has tested positive for COVID-19.
 
 
The 29-year-old, who has been one of the club's most-used midfielders when he has been available for selection, has been placed on two-week self-isolation.
 
The club's official statement reads "Orlando Pirates Football Club can confirm that Ben Motshwari has tested positive for COVID-19,"
 
"Ben was presented with flu-like symptoms last week and after undergoing tests, his results have come back positive.
 
"The player is asymptomatic and is currently in home isolation for the next 14 days. He will need to test negative before he is cleared."
 
The club is now looking to trace Motshwari's contacts from the previous two weeks to determine the possible extent of the spread within the player's surroundings and potentially within their own stable.
 
"The Club has also advised that the player must notify the doctors of all the people that he has been in contact with to ensure that they also get tested," the statement further noted.
