And in a potentially stunning development, only two positive tests came back.

An official statement read: “The Premier League can today confirm that between Monday 1 February and Sunday 7 February, across two rounds of testing, 2,970 players and club staff were tested for COVID-19.

“Of these, there were two new positive tests.

“Players or club staff who have tested positive will self-isolate for a period of 10 days.

“The Premier League is providing this aggregated information for the purposes of competition integrity and transparency.

“No specific details as to clubs or individuals will be provided by the League and results will be made public on a weekly basis.”

The two positives from the latest round of testing is the lowest since the Premier League began testing late last August.

The first week of testing also yielded the fewest positive results – with three of 1,605 tests coming back positive.

Round 20 of testing, which took place between January 4 and January 10, returned the most positive tests – with 36 of 2,593 discovering traces of covid.
