Copa America: Brazil records 140 coronavirus cases, striker banned from football tournament

During the Copa America football tournament in Brazil, the cases of Coronavirus infection have increased to 140. CONMEBOL said in a statement that 15 thousand 235 tests were conducted and the percentage of infected people is 0-9. The South American Football Confederation said that most of the infected individuals are employees, outside staff, and team members. The infection rate has come down as compared to earlier, which proves that the health protocol is being strictly followed.

Chile admitted on Sunday that some of its players had violated protocol when a hairstylist was invited to their hotel. The Chilean Football Association did not reveal the names or numbers of the players but said they would be fined.

One of the players is banned from Copa America for criticizing organizers. Marcelo Martins, a Bolivian striker who criticized the Copa America football tournament being played in Brazil, was suspended for one match by the Confederation of South American Football (CONMEBOL) and fined $20,000. The disciplinary commission warned Martins on Friday that a one-year ban could be imposed for repeating the mistake.

The Bolivia Football Association condemned the ban on Twitter. Three Bolivian players, including Martins, were found to be Corona positive. Condemning CONMEBOL on social media, he said, “Thank you CONMEBOL for all this. It’s all your fault. What would you do if someone died? Only money matters to you. Players’ lives have any value or not.
