The number of people infected with coronavirus at America’s Cup reached 140

The number of people infected with coronavirus at America’s Cup has reached 140, according to a press release from the South American Football Confederation (CONMEBOL).

“Since the beginning of the tournament, 15,235 tests have been conducted, 140 of them have shown a positive result, about 0.9%… The majority of those infected is workers, members of delegations, and hired personnel,” the press release says.

Last week, 41 cases of coronavirus infection were reported at the tournament.

The Copa America was originally scheduled to take place in Colombia and Argentina. In May, the South American Football Confederation deprived Colombia of the right to host this tournament due to mass protests in the country. Later, CONMEBOL announced that Brazil will become the host country of the Copa America-2021 instead of Argentina, which lost the tournament due to the epidemiological situation.
