Hannover defender Timo Hubers has tested positive for Coronavirus. The club believes the 23-year-old contracted the virus at an event in Hildesheim on Saturday.
News reported that Hubers immediately self-isolated after going to the doctor for tests once he had learned he had been in contact with someone who had the virus.
However, the club is responsible for quarantining all participants, coaching teams and staff. They will undergo tests as a precautionary measure.
“Timo is very cooperative. He has not shown any symptoms so far. When he learned that someone with him at the event had tested positive, he reported directly to the doctor and underwent quarantine at home,” said Gerhard Zuber, Hannover 96 sports director.
Germany has so far reported 1,296 cases of the virus, according to figures released by the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) for disease control late on Tuesday.
