The actions of football players from Spanish clubs with identified coronavirus will be checked using a video analysis program that will help determine whether an infected person could infect his teammate or opponent, Reuters reports, referring to the medical protocol drawn up by La Liga.
A medical protocol was sent out to Sample and Segunda clubs on Monday amid plans to resume the season, interrupted by the coronavirus pandemic. Earlier on Sunday, La Liga management allowed clubs to train in groups of up to ten players. In La Liga itself, they expect the championship to resume on June 12.
According to the protocol, the player infected with the coronavirus will be isolated, and the players who contacted him for more than five minutes will be checked.
The places where the player was located will also be processed. As noted, studies show that the risk of infection increases if the infected person contacts other people for more than 15 minutes. As a measure to combat the spread of the disease, La Liga will use a video analysis system.
In addition, players and match officials will be checked 24 hours before the match, and their temperature will be measured at the stadium. Balls distributed around the field will be constantly disinfected.
All players and the coaching staff of the teams will have to wear masks upon arrival at the stadium and treat their hands with special equipment before and after the warm-up. Handshakes were canceled before and after the game, and post-match press conferences of coaches will be held via video link.
