The English Premier League said a total of 40 individuals tested positive for COVID-19, the highest number of cases in a week this season, in two rounds of tests conducted last week.
Since the new season kicked off, 171 individuals in the English top-flight have tested positive for the novel coronavirus in 19 rounds of testing.
The league, which is now conducting tests twice per week, did not name the people who tested positive but said they will self-isolate for 10 days.
