South African cricket team players who were in India for a bilateral series are at risk of contracting novel coronavirus after a famous Indian singer, Kanika Kapoor, was tested positive for the disease.
According to the reports, the Baby Doll singer was staying at the same hotel as the South African team. It has not been confirmed whether she came into contact with any of the players, however, all the touring members have been asked to stay in isolation for 14 days.
There are reports that she dined in the hotel’s buffet and also attended several guests in the lobby. She was living there at a time when the South African team was staying in the hotel for the ODI match, which eventually was called off. There is information that Kanika was seen briefly attending a news channel’s annual conclave held at the hotel.
South Africa’s tour was canceled without any matches played owing to the rapidly changing coronavirus situation across the globe.
Until now, there has been no official confirmation of any South African player testing positive for the novel coronavirus.
