CAF medical officer Dr Prince Pamboe has explained measures to be strictly adhered to by the various national teams as they begin preparations ahead of their respective CAF and FIFA qualifiers in September amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The President of Ghana in his 14th address gave the green light for the various national teams to begin preparation ahead of their respective qualifiers.
Ghana’s national women’s team, the Black Princesses (U-20), Maidens (U17) and the U-17 men’s team the Black Starlets will in the coming weeks converge to start preparation ahead of their various assignment.
The Sports Physician has touched on the guidelines on how football can return in the midst of the pandemic and ensuring the safety of its members.
According to him, all the players must be tested before they can begin camping. Pambo also explained the need to create an isolation center to treat casualties.
“All the players must be tested before they begin camping. An isolation centre must be created in camp so that when a player is infected they can be quarantined and possibly treated”
“An ambulance must also be made available at the camp whilst all players must have a room to themselves. Two buses must be provided for the team so that proper social distancing can be done”, he told Happy FM.
He added, ” The medical team will check the temperature of all those in camp everyday and there will be restrictions on movements. The team should be provided with at least two spacious buses”.
