These days are proving to be very grim and fickle in nature. Due to Covid-19 pandemic all around the globe, there is a sense of fear and overprotectiveness among all human beings.

The virus in itself is very rampant and robust in nature. All countries are trying only to stay safe from it. Due to no particular vaccine been approved, fear roams around the mind of all human beings.

With sports commencing last month, chances of players coming in contact with the virus significantly increase. All governing bodies have in some form or the other are allowing sports to operate under strict supervision and regulations.

Safety and health measures have been taken each and every place wherever sports are being conducted. However, chances are never zero. There may be some form of error, which may lead to some people or particular persons in being infected.

Something similar has taken place a few days ago, raising a lot of concerns.

World number 19 faces Covid-19

An update by Grigor Dimitrov started to gather attention just 30 minutes before the final of the second leg of the Adria Tour. It is between Novak Djokovic and world no 14 Andrey Rublev. Dimitrov, a former world no 3, has his face covered with a mask in the photograph, and announces in the description that he has tested positive for COVID-19.

“I want to reach out and let my fans and friends know that I tested positive back in Monaco for Covid-19,” reads his statement. “This is to make sure anyone who has been in contact with me during these past days gets tested and takes the necessary precautions. I am so sorry for any harm I might have caused. I’ll be back home now and recovering.”

The event has received criticism over the fact that there appears to be no such precautions in place in terms of social distancing. Players were seen hugging, and the stadium was filled to capacity with not many wearing masks in the stands.

As things now stand with Dimitrov, the organisers of the event are certainly in the line of fire.
