SAI experts to form six-member central task force for corona-infected players

The Sports Authority of India will constitute a six-member central task force of experts to look at the players found positive for COVID19. The task force will take care of the players engaged in the preparations for the Olympics who are suffering from COVID-19 for six months. It will be seen whether the player is able to withstand the pressure during the game.

The experts have asked the Sports Authority of India that as some teams in IPL have worn a wrist band or ring for the security of cricketers, they should also get this equipment. Through these, the members of the Task Force will be able to monitor all types of activity (oxygen level, sleep duration, etc.) of the player from the app. If the task force reduces the parameters of the player, it will ask the regional member to resolve it by giving its information.

The regional task force of experts will be set up not only at the central level but also at the place where the players are practicing in the camp. The Sports Authority of India will announce it soon. The Task Force will consist of scientists, physio and psychiatrists in addition to medical specialists. During the exercise, players will be provided with heart tests such as echocardiography, cardiac rest tests and cardiac MRI. Lung related checks will also be conducted. These demands have been made about the safety of the players.
