test Kenji Shibuya, the former director of the Institute for Population Health at King’s College London, said: “It’s obvious that the bubble system is kind of broken. My biggest concern is there will be a cluster of infections in the village or some of the accommodation and interaction with local people.”
The rise in cases comes as the six British athletes and two support staff previously in quarantine passed their second round of PCR tests and were given the all-clear to resume training. They had all been made to isolate on Sunday because of a positive Covid case on their flight.
The respective athletes’ training still has to take place in isolation as a precautionary measure, as well as travelling on their own to any facilities.
