Despite strict protocol, a covid pandemic has invaded the Junior Hockey World Cup. On Friday, an individual who came in contact with the media centre at Kalinga Stadium was discovered infected. Despite media personnel who entered inside the bio bubble and tested RT-PCR every 48 hours for coverage, a person was detected infectious in a test done on Thursday.
The man is a member of the Odisha government's Sports and Youth Affairs Department's social media team, according to the local organising committee. Efforts are being undertaken to track down those who may have come into touch with them. The Indian squad had previously lost in the semi-finals to Germany. The German team advanced to the championship after defeating India 4-2 in the semifinals. In the final, he will face Argentina. The Indian squad will compete against France for third place.
