The World of football is still grappling with the effects of the Coronavirus pandemic, with Football Associations across the world still formulating measures and weighing on return to field formulae.

The recent competition to return is the German side Bundesliga, however, one club in the competition is facing it out following isolation of its players.

The German second-tier side Dynamo Dresden have returned two more positive tests for coronavirus.

BBC Sports report that the club put their entire squad and coaching staff into isolation for two weeks on 9 May after two players tested positive.

As a result, another player and the partner of a member of the coaching staff have tested positive for Covid-19.

"The Dresden Health Department acted absolutely responsibly and correctly by quarantining our team at home, because it enabled us to break an infection chain within our team at an early stage," said Dresden's team doctor team Onays Al-Sadi.

The team will be resuming training on Saturday after missing out last weekend kick off due to the isolation of players.

The Bundesliga and Bundesliga 2 both restarted on Saturday, 16 May as the first major European league to resume after the coronavirus shutdown.

The return to field means only about 300 people –including players, staff and officials –are allowed inside or around the stadiums on match days.
