Melbourne United players test positive to COVID -19

NBL club Melbourne United have been rocked by two players testing positive for COVID -19.

Mitch McCarron and Jo Lual-Acuil started self-isolation on Sunday and Monday respectively after they were diagnosed with the deadly disease.

United chief executive Vince Crivelli said the test results came as a shock to everyone.

“I’m expecting there to be more, I’ve got no scientific evidence but the doctor was saying the same, most likely going to be someone else affected,” Crivelli said.

“It’s just whether they have symptoms. The whole isolation period is super important, the 14 days.”

United are now bracing for potential further cases.

The NBL has ordered United and South East Melbourne Phoenix to suspend all activity and self-isolate.
