India midfielder Navjot Kaur to fly back home after testing positive for COVID-19

Birmingham: India midfielder Navjot Kaur’s campaign at the Commonwealth Games came to an abrupt end as she is set to fly back home after testing positive for COVID-19.
The 27-year-old from Kurukshetra had been in isolation for the past two days.
Sonika replaces her in the 18-member Indian women’s squad.
India opened their campaign with a 5-0 win over Ghana on Friday.
“She has been kept in isolation. Her CT value is not infectious and she has no symptoms. She tested positive in the first test but in the second test her CT value improved and she can’t infect others. She has been cleared to fly back to India by the organisers,” a team source told PTI.
Navjot is a member of the silver-winning team at the Asian Games in Jakarta and bronze winner from Incheon in 2014. —PTI
