The Premier League has announced that 16 positive coronavirus cases were recorded in the latest week of testing.

It marks a significant reduction from the 36 positive cases recorded last week, following a season-high of 40 a fortnight ago.

Recent outbreaks have affected Aston Villa, Newcastle, Manchester City and Fulham.

Six Premier League matches have been called off due to COVID-19 cases this season, most recently Villa’s game at home to Everton on Sunday.

In a statement, the Premier League said “between Monday 11 January and Sunday 17 January, across two rounds of testing, 3,115 players and club staff were tested for COVID-19. Of these, there were 16 new positive tests.”

Players or club staff who have tested positive will self-isolate for a period of 10 days.

The Premier League, along with the Football Association and the English Football League, released a joint statement on Thursday reiterating the importance of following newly enhanced COVID-19 measures and have already begun rescheduling fixtures with Spurs playing out their meeting with Fulham in place of the cancelled game against Villa.
