It has been confirmed that a Hearts player is in self-isolation after developing symptoms of Covid-19.
The SPFL has been indefinitely suspended as the virus sweeps across the world with little mercy. Over 137,000 cases have been confirmed at the time of publishing, with the number of cases far greater due to unidentified people.
Already in Scottish football, an Inverness and a Stenhousemuir player have been taken into self-isolation after developing symptoms related to Covid-19. Hearts are the next to follow.
Government guidelines are that if symptoms associated with the virus are developed, any one person is to self-isolate for seven days. That’s what has happened with Hearts’ unnamed player.
It is likely that more in Scottish football roles will become infected with the disease as it spreads globally and across the nation.
In England there have been two positive tests in football circles. Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta and Chelsea’s Callum Hudson-Odoi have both had confirmed cases of Covid-19.
