Recently we got to know that the vice-chairman and president of Toronto Raptors Masai Ujiri have tested positive for Covid-19. Ujiri announced this test report by issuing a release.
Ujiri has reported that he tested positive right after the event of the Giants of Africa organization, and even some other guests have also tested positive.
Before attending the event everyone had to show their vaccination proof and to wear a mask every time. He said he is fully vaccinated and jabbed a booster shot, but still he tested positive.
Now he is at home and in self-isolation for 10 days and has been monitoring for any severe symptoms. He is now going under medication asking everyone to maintain the protocols.
The president even said that we want to live without the fear of Covid. This virus is an enemy and unitedly we have to defeat it.
The Raptors has cancelled all their practices as they were scheduled to host the New York Knicks. Since Thursday they have cancelled all the practices for precautionary reasons.
The team has said that they haven’t travelled outside Canada since the last visit to Indiana on 26th November. And they are not willing to travel any soon.
The Raptors reported that all the staffs are fully vaccinated whereas the NBA’s are 97 per cent vaccinated.
Due to Covid a lot of game was postponed but no games are rescheduled yet. For the safety protocols, a lot of players are taking a step back for now, where Chicago Bulls star and former Raptor DeMar DeRozan is currently out from the game.
NBA’s health authority has included more protocols. Before one match the players have to stay sidelined for 10 days or they need two negative Covid-19 test reports in 24 hours.
In late February the Raptors were hit by a Covid-19 outbreak and eventually missed the playoffs.
According to the protocols last weekend The Charlotte Hornets has placed four players- LaMelo Ball, Jalen McDaniels, Mason Plumlee and Terry Rozier.
