Within the Burkinabe delegation, 5 players and 2 staff members tested positive for Covid-19.
The selections that participate in this CAN 2021 are regularly subjected to Covid-19 tests. To date, seven cases of Coronavirus have been declared within the Burkinabe delegation. Except that, the Stallions dispute the procedure and protocol of the tests carried out on Cameroonian territory.
"They gave us antigenic tests, not PCR. Why this and with two medical groups, the first of which was not recognized by CAF, we want explanations," says Bernard Traoré. In the same vein, Burkina Faso is demanding that players be tested again.
Burkina Faso face Cameroon tomorrow, January 9, in the opening match. The match is scheduled at the Olembé stadium, which will be full at 80% of its capacity.
