Timo Hübers has become the first Bundesliga footballer to test positive for the coronavirus.
The central defender is currently in quarantine at home.
It is assumed that Hübers got infected at an event in Hildesheim on Saturday evening.
Since the 23-year-old has had no contact with his teammates since the infection, which can be precisely localized, it cannot be assumed that teammates have become infected with him. Nevertheless, they act responsibly – the entire professional squad, trainer team and staff are tested for the virus as a precaution.
Hannover 96’s sporting director Gerhard Zuber commended Timo for reporting himself even without showing symptoms.
“Timo behaved in an exemplary manner. He shows no symptoms himself. So far, when he found out that a person who had been with him at the event was tested positively, he reported directly to the doctor and temporarily went into quarantine at home. ” He said.
Hübers is still in domestic quarantine and will not be available fo his side’sr second division duel with Dynamo Dresden,
