Germany Cup: Corona cases in Slovakia


Shortly from the Germany Cup, two Slovak national ice hockey players tested positive for the corona virus.

The four-country tournament in Krefeld, the last casting for national coach Toni Söderholm before the Olympic Games in Beijing, should take place as planned. The German Ice Hockey Federation (DEB) announced on Thursday.

The results come from the PCR testing carried out on all teams on Wednesday. Affected professionals show no symptoms and have been isolated. According to the DEB, two contact persons are in quarantine as a precaution. All Slovak players are fully vaccinated.

Before the tournament kicked off on Thursday afternoon against Switzerland (4:15 p.m. / MagentaSport), a quick test was carried out on the Slovaks, which turned out completely negative. “The number of infections at home and abroad has recently risen sharply again, which makes it all the more important to continue to implement our strict hygiene measures,” said DEB Sports Director Christian Künast.
