Daniel Wells has now withdrawn from the 2020 Snooker Champions League due to a positive test result for the new crown virus. Chinese player Lei Peifan retested negative but decided to retire.
On Friday, October 2nd, UK local time, Wells was tested for the new crown virus, and immediately left the stadium without any direct contact with other personnel, and remained in isolation until the results were obtained.
Wells withdrew from the European Masters after being tested positive on September 22. According to the government's epidemic prevention guidelines, he was retested this Friday, and other players who played on the same day tested negative.
On October 2, Lei Peifan was forced to withdraw from the 28th group of competition due to invalid testing. After re-testing, his new crown virus test result was negative, but he has chosen to leave the isolated safe zone of the stadium.
Therefore, the 24th group Wells is in will be played in the form of three players, using a double round-robin system in which the players fight each opponent twice.
Ensuring the personal health, safety and well-being of players and staff is our top priority. Since the return of the snooker event in June this year, it has been operated and organized under the guidance of the British government and the approval of the Ministry of Sports and the local Ministry of Public Health. Strictly abide by the relevant epidemic prevention regulations of COVID-19. (World Snooker)
