This week six people tested positive involving three from Watford and one from Burnley before it was later confirmed it was Burnley assistant coach Ian Woan and Adrian Marriapa of Watford.

Sample sizes collected have been increased from the initial 748 collected in the first round where the six were discovered.

All clubs will from now on going forward see the number of tests conducted increased to 50 from 50 as a precautionary measure.

English Premier League officials have however remained optimistic that the league will make a return in June as planned.

This follows a similar return madeby Bundesliga clubs last week following an indefinite break caused by the pandemic.

Fans will again not be allowed at the stadiums as has been the case before the pandemic so as to cut the transmission and stop the spread.

The Spanish La Liga is also expected to make June 8th return as players resumed their isolated training in groups.
