The Covid-19 Task Force has been doing their best to prevent the spread by implementing the bubble system and regular PCR swab tests.

"We did PCR swab test for the one day before the match at 10.00-11.00 in the morning. The results came out in the afternoon. If someone is tested positive, then the next day or the D-day, all team personnel will be retested. After that, they will be tested (through the antigen method) again.
