The source confirmed to ESPN that more than half of the Vancouver Canucks players tested positive for COVID-19. In addition to the 14 people who appeared on Saturday, we hope to add other names to the team’s list of COVID-19 agreements.
Some participants are symptomatic, and according to some sources, some are in a “rough” state. A Canucks player told ESPN that he had not heard from the team representative that any players were going to the hospital, but he heard that his teammates were undergoing IV treatment for severe dehydration, probably at their homes. A source told ESPN that at least three Canucks coaches also tested positive for the virus. In addition, according to sources, many family members of the players have tested positive and are experiencing symptoms.
“Fatigue, dehydration, and severe symptoms,”
The source confirmed to ESPN on Saturday night that the P.1 variant of the more infectious COVID-19 first discovered in Brazil has been found in several cases affecting Canucks, which is the first known in the NHL The new variant case this year’s team. The news was originally reported by Postmedia in Canada. The Vancouver area has recently become a hot spot for P.1 variants.
The NHL initially planned to close the Canucks practice facility, and the team will not be able to resume operations on April 8 until at least April 6. However, these dates are expected to be postponed because this is the worst season for the NHL team. The NHL hopes that the Canucks team can resume the game this season, although it will make a decision according to the schedule in the next few days, because more information about the players’ recovery will be collected.
The NHL and NHLPA distributed a memo to the team on Saturday reminding them to stay “vigilant” and follow the guidelines agreed this season-including wearing a mask and not going to restaurants even if the individual has been vaccinated. It also reminded the coach not to take off the mask during the game to talk to players or officials on the bench, which has become a common practice in the NHL this season.
The Canucks are the second Canadian team with COVID-19 issues. The Montreal Canadiens postponed four games in late March, but have since resumed action. The NHL has now postponed 45 games due to COVID-19, although the first 37 postponements have been for the US team.
