POSITIVE CORONAVIRUS TEST FOR EDIMILSON FERNANDES

Swiss national player already infected in late summer - investigations ongoing

In the first competitive match of the year in Munich, Edimilson was part of Mainz's starting eleven.

Edimilson Fernandes tested positive again for the Coronavirus during the regular series of tests last Friday. The Swiss international was immediately isolated from his team-mates in accordance with the hygiene concept drawn up by the DFL medical task force and is currently in quarantine.

Fernandes had already contracted the Coronavirus in late summer of 2020. Whether the current positive test is a residual viral load from the past infection or a new infection is currently still being investigated.

The results of all other people tested were negative, the Zerofivers will carry out an additional test this week in addition to the tests that are required anyway as part of the hygiene concept. All measures are being taken in close coordination with the Mainz medical department, the club's hygiene officer and the local health authorities.
