Chief Medical Officer of Cricket West Indies, Dr. Akshai Mansingh, says sporting disciplines in Jamaica that have been categorised as high risk spreaders of COVID-19 should seriously start considering playing in a bubble.

He says this is in order to increase their chances of getting approval from the authorities to host matches.

Contact sports such as football, basketball, rugby, netball and hockey have been categories as high risk by Jamaica through the directive of the World Health Organisation.

Dr. Mansingh, who was speaking on the Kiwanis Club of Eastern St. Andrew webinar, says this was the approach adopted by cricket from the early onset of the virus.
