The Good Part
However, despite all this, the good news is that Mr. More has been declared to be asymptomatic. Right now, he is undergoing isolation in Chennai, as stated by the management officials.
He is safe and trying to recover to get to the field as soon as possible. Mr. More testing positive is, however, no surprise as he had been attending several events and sessions in Chennai over the last week.
He had undergone and cleared all possible tests both in Mumbai and Chennai before the results came out positive. The medical department of the team will closely monitor Mr. More’s health on a continuous basis and obey the safety protocols of BCCI.
IPL Control & Safety Protocols
As dark covid cloud looms over IPL 2021, there is an increasing list of people who are getting infected by the Covid 19 virus. Kiran More has also been added to that list. When the media officials raised their concerns and queries about this specific Covid case that took place in a bubble, the BCCI secretary and chairman ignored such aspects.
However, it has been confirmed that Mr. Kiran More, as well as the Mumbai Indians team, have strictly followed all the guidelines laid by BCCI. The day Mr. More tested positive, the team canceled their practice session as a measure of precaution.
All the players were also made to go through a rapid antigen test, the results of which came out to be negative. While the Indian Premier League hierarchy has been taking severe measures to keep things under control, we hope for Kiran More’s urgent recovery so that he could get right back on track.
