Six members of the Pakistan cricket squad, which is currently on a tour to New Zealand, have tested positive for the coronavirus. The team also received a “final warning” for flouting quarantine rules. New Zealand health authorities revoked the players’ ability to train while in isolation, making clear they would not tolerate risky behaviour in a country that has largely eradicated the virus.
Two of the members who tested positive were “historical cases”, it said, while the other four were new infections. NZC said the infected players would be moved into the quarantine wing of the managed isolation facility where they were staying.
