Ashanti Gold

The medical head of Ashanti Gold SC, Dr George Chidi, has vehemently denied reports that four players in the team have tested positive for COVID-19.

The Miners are making plans for the CAF Confederations cup after they were selected by the GFA following the truncation of the 2019/20 football season.

In the plans, players are to be tested for coronavirus before they start training. 

Dr Chidi stated that the tests have not been done yet and as such, the reports on players testing positive for the virus are untrue.

“That’s not true, because we have not started testing them of COVID-19, we are yet to start the COVID test, all things being equal on Saturday we should start,” he told Oyerepa FM.

“It’s no big deal anyone testing positive but we are yet to do the COVID-19 test, KCCR is ready to come to pick the samples but we are trying to put our logistics together. We need to put in place the protocols,” he added.
