Basketball compulsory tests in the Pro A Sport

The second basketball Bundesliga Pro A reacted to the large number of corona infections and expanded the hygiene concept. From now on, all players, coaches, referees and commissioners involved must be tested for the virus “mandatory” before the games. Even a positive test result would lead to the game being canceled, according to a press release on Tuesday. “The health of everyone involved in gaming is our top priority,” said managing director Christian Krings. “In order to minimize the risk of infection, we also want to use the additional tests to identify asymptomatic infection processes before a game and to be able to react for the safety of everyone.” At the beginning of November, discussions arose about how the league should deal with the corona pandemic. After a game against Hagen, ten out of 14 players tested positive for the Nürnberg Falcons.
