Premier League rules out strategic sourcing Covid-19 vaccine

The Premier League goes on to rule out going about trying to source a private source of coronavirus vaccine even with a the latest flurry of postponements of top-flight matches.

The PA news agency reported at the beginning of December that the league had ruled out any move to secure its own supply, and it is understood recent improvements have not changed that job.

The league is actually understood to think that the most vulnerable in society must get the vaccine to begin with, and in just about any situation, at present, demand outstrips governments and source around the world have bought up stocks before makers have even created them.

It’s understood clubs have expressed a willingness to help with the rollout of vaccines, which will now be equipped to take place on a much greater scale following the endorsement of the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine on Wednesday.

Brighton are understood to be prepared to assist in any way they can if approached to do it.

The Premier League put out a statement on Wednesday night insisting that there was no plans to pause the season, and sometimes even any interactions over such a move, despite two games being called off and so much this week.

Manchester City‘s match against Everton on Monday was postponed due to coronavirus, and so very was Fulham’s match at Tottenham on Wednesday.

The league found 18 good cases on Monday from its most recent round of testing of players as well as staff, the highest number since testing started as part of Project Restart in the summer.

But the Premier League statement added: “The league continues to have confidence in its Covid 19 protocols to allow fixtures to be played as scheduled, and those protocols continue to experience the full backing of Government.

“With the health of players as well as staff the priority, the league is also completely supportive of exactly how clubs are actually applying the protocols as well as rules.”

Shrewsbury became the most up club to inform the EFL of their failure to fulfil a fixture, in cases like this their Sky Bet League One match against Crewe on Saturday.

3 matches in this division because of to be played on Saturday have recently been postponed due to coronavirus outbreaks.

The latest spate of rise and postponements rise in infections has positioned question marks over how many of next month’s FA Cup third round ties will be played as scheduled.

All clubs involved will face tests beforehand. Testing for non-Premier League clubs will be paid for by the Professional Game Board.
