Six members of the Pakistan’s touring squad in New Zealand have tested positive for novel coronavirus, New Zealand Cricket (NZC) informed on Thursday.
This was reported to the NZC after some of the members of the touring side, which is currently in isolation at a facility in Christchurch, had “contravened protocols on the first day of managed isolation.”
“Two of these six results have been deemed “historical”; four have been confirmed as new,” NZC stated in a media release.
“This means that, in line with the protocols governing the squad’s entry into New Zealand, the six members of the squad will be moved to the quarantine arm of the managed isolation facility,” it added.
Six of those results have come back positive, although two of the six cases are believed to be “historical”.
