The Football Association of Zambia says the senior women national team is safe and undergoing the requisite medical protocols in Chile after seven members of the team tested positive for Covid-19.

Medical authorities in Chile have sent the team into quarantine as part of the country’s medical regulations.

However, the team’s confinement is at Torremayor Hotel in Santiago and will undergo another test in 14 days.

A communique from the Regional Ministry of Health says the decisions have been made based on Exempt Resolution Number 591 and its amendment of July 25 and October 8 of the Chilean laws.

FAZ Deputy General Secretary Joseph Chimpampwe says the Association is keeping track of events in Chile and will keep the nation updated.

This is according to a statement issued to Zibani Zambia Sports by Football Association of Zambia Communications Manager Sydney Mungala.
