BCB need to be more careful about the bio-bubble

Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) President Nazmul Hassan said that they need to be more careful about the bio-bubble in place after Sri Lanka’s Shiran Fernando returned COVID-19 positive ahead of the first One Day International (ODI) yesterday.

“The ICC protocols have directives on everything regarding such situations. What to do when someone is tested positive, whether to quarantine and keep in isolation and even who will take responsibility if someone needs to see a doctor,” Nazmul said during the innings break of the first ODI.

“The bio-secure bubble we have, it’s difficult for someone who is negative to turn positive after entering that bubble. We don’t feel it’s possible but it can happen.”

“Shiran had recovered from Coronavirus a few weeks back and the BCB President felt dead virus cells in the body could have led to a positive report in the tests.”

“We think that one who tested positive, maybe since he recovered from Coronavirus a few days back, the PCR test detected dead RNA.”

“There are times it [dead virus RNA] can stay in the body for 28 days. This is why we have once again sent for new tests.”
