Elliott Bennett,Blackburn captain and two Fulham players test positive for Coronavirus

Blackburn confirmed in a statement that their captain Elliott Bennett was the third of those whose results returned positive after 1,030 players and club staff were tested on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday this week.

Blackburn Rovers captain Elliott Bennett and two Fulham players have tested positive for Coronavirus in the latest round of EFL testing.

Fulham have not revealed the identity of the two players but they will self-isolate in line with EFL and government guidance.

The club said that Bennett, 31, initially submitted a negative test on Friday May 22 , but tested positive when he underwent a second test on Monday. 

He is asymptomatic and is feeling no ill-effects but will self-isolate at home for the next week, according to the Championship club.

“I feel fit and healthy,” Bennett told the club’s website. “Hopefully this sends out a positive message to the community that perhaps many people have or have had the virus without showing any effects.

“I obviously would never have known if we hadn’t returned to training and taken the tests, because I don’t feel unwell and have got no symptoms whatsoever.

In the EFL’s last round of tests,  two persons tested positive from 1,014 tests. It was revealed the two people were at Hull City.
