On Tuesday, the EPL announced that six people have tested positive for COVID-19 after a total of 748 tests were administered to players and members of staff.

The positive cases come from just three teams, although the individuals who have contracted the virus were not named. It has, however, since been confirmed that three of the cases come from Watford.  

"The Premier League can today confirm that, on Sunday, 17 May and Monday, 18 May, 748 players and club staff were tested for Covid-19," a statement on the Premier League's official website read.

"The Premier League is providing this aggregated information for the purposes of competition integrity and oversight. No specific details as to clubs or individuals will be provided by the Premier League due to legal and operational requirements."

Since the announcement, Burnley have revealed that their assistant manager Ian Woan has also tested positive for COVID-19.
