The Premier League have confirmed just two new positive Covid-19 results across the division after the latest round of testing.
In an update released on Monday evening, the top-flight said that 2,970 players and club staff in total had been tested for coronavirus between Monday, February 1 and Sunday, February 7.
Of that number, only two returned positive results. Those unnamed individuals will now be required to self-isolate for 10 days in line with Government protocol.
Monday’s results represent the joint-lowest number of Covid-19 cases recorded in the Premier League in a single week all season as there were also only two positives recorded between October 19-25.
There have been 23 rounds of testing in total during the 2020/21 campaign so far, with a season-high of 36 positive results recorded between January 4-10.
There has been a notable downward trend since then, however, with the number of new cases falling to 16 the following week before dropping further to eight between January 18-24.
Last week, there were seven new cases recorded in the Premier League.
“The Premier League can today confirm that between Monday 1 February and Sunday 7 February, across two rounds of testing, 2,970 players and club staff were tested for COVID-19,” read the Premier League’s statement on Monday.
