NFL postpones Sunday's Steelers-Titans game after multiple players test positive for Covid-19

美国橄榄球联盟 has experienced its first outbreak of the season, forcing the league to postpone Sunday’s Pittsburgh Steelers-Tennessee Titans game.

The Titans have had four players and five staff members test positive for 新冠肺炎. The league says it will reschedule the game to either Monday or Tuesday so that additional time can be allocated for coronavirus testing.
The Titansfacilities remain closed indefinitely. Both the Titans and Minnesota Vikings, who played each other on Sunday, suspended in-person activities indefinitely on Tuesday. The Vikings have not announced any positive cases.
There have long been fears that it would be difficult for the NFL to finish out its season as planned due to the contagious nature of Covid-19.
    Unless players are essentially in a bubbleinsulated from the community and they are tested nearly every dayit would be very hard to see how football is able to be played this fall,” 博士. 安东尼·福西, the nation’s leading infectious disease expert, told CNN’s Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta in June.
    As of September 22, 的 NFL Players Association announced that it had no new positive cases among players and five among team personnel.
