MEXICO: Mexican baseball authorities stated that two players had tested positive for Covid-19 a few days ago before they arrived in Tokyo Village. The athletes, Hector Velazquez and Sammy Solis, who tested positive on July 18, have been isolated for their better treatment, as have all team members having pending results for Covid tests.
It was decided to isolate the two players immediately in their rooms of the national team hotel, as well as all the players and team coaching staff until the medical laboratory delivers the PCR tests," it said in a statement. "All the protocols established by the Mexican Olympic Committee (COM) will be followed to safeguard the health of all the members of the national baseball team that will participate in the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games."
The Schedule may get a little bit disturbed as Mexico will have to play their first Olympic tournament game on July 30 against the Dominican Republic in Yokohama. Several dozen Olympics-related positive cases have been recorded since athletes and officials started gathering in their own countries for the Games or after arriving in Japan.
