South African rugby team quarantined after fellow passenger tests positive for COVID-19

NHK, TBS, and Fuji TV reported at noon that 18 members of the South African rugby team are currently in quarantine following the finding that a passenger on their flight to Narita on Tuesday evening tested positive for COVID-19. The networks said that although all 21 members of the team tested negative, 14 athletes and 4 staff members were suspected of having been in close contact with the passenger who tested positive for COVID-19. The networks said it will take two to three days to confirm whether the 18 members were in close contact with the person who tested positive. If any of them were, they will need to quarantine for 14 days and will be unable to attend the opening ceremony. According to the networks, the South African team was planning to begin their pre-Olympic training camp in Kagoshima today.
