Legon Cities FC Conduct Covid-19 Test For Players; First Club To Do So
Legon Cities FC has become the first Ghanaian club to conduct Coronavirus test for its players, Modernghana Sports can report.
The deadly Covid-19 disease was first recorded in Ghana on March 12 and has since seen a surge in the number of recorded cases. So far, the West African country has recorded over 15,000 cases with more than 10,000 recoveries.
In the midst of the pandemic where the football season has been suspended, Legon Cities FC has taken the step in ensuring the safety of its players after conducting tests for all of the lads.
Board Member for the Ghana Premier League side, Fred Agbenyor has confirmed the move in an interview with Accra-based Atinka FM.
According to him, the Royal Club paid a sum of $80 per test and wants the government to support other clubs to conduct tests as well.
Due to the Covid-19 crisis in the country, the 2019/2020 football season in Ghana has been put on hold for the past 3 months.
All clubs will be required to test their players before the campaign makes a return.
