Jamaica Football Federation, JFF, President, Michael Ricketts has been explaining the the latest COVID-19 case in the national contingent currently in Saudi Arabia for two International Friendlies.

General Secretary Dalton Wint is currently in isolation after testing positive for COVID-19.

Wint left the island last week, with President Michael Ricketts and Vice President Bruce Gaynor, bound for Saudi Arabia, where the National Team is engaging the three time Asian champions in two international friendlies.

The trio got into Riyad in time for the first game, but, missed the action since they had to undergo the mandatory 48 hour quarantine period.

The trio were held up in the United States when it was discovered they did not follow COVID-19 protocols.

The rest of the Jamaican contingent underwent another set of COVID-19 test this morning as they get ready for the second game at the Prince Faisal Stadium in Riyad tomorrow morning at 11.30 Jamaica time.

Wint now joins assistant coach Jerome Waite and three players on the list of COVID-19 positive members of the traveling party.

As per protocols set by the host, people testing positive are isolated for 10 days before another test is done.

If a negative result emerges, people can travel home.

The Reggae Boyz were beaten 3-0 in the first game on Saturday, their second straight loss to the Saudis following a 5-2 defeat on their last visit.

Ricketts is looking forward to the team doing much better than it did at the weekend.
