New Delhi. The T20 World Cup (ICC T20 World Cup 2021) is starting from 17 October. This time the matches will be played in UAE and Oman. Due to Corona and Venue in two different countries, ICC does not want to take any kind of risk. That’s why a strict Bio-Bubble (T20 World Cup Bio-Bubble Protocol) has been prepared. It has been made with the advice of experts who were involved in the bio-safety of Formula 1 (Formula 1), Euro 2020 and Tokyo Olympics 2020.
ICC’s head of bio-safety, Alex Marshall, said that we do not want to leave any lacuna. That’s why we’ve talked to experts overseeing biosecurity for the Tokyo Olympics, Euro 2020 and Formula One. The second half of IPL 2021 is also being played here. Before this, many series have also happened. We have learned a lot from this and helped in preparing the bio-bubble protocol for the T20 World Cup.
What are the things players, teams and officials have to keep in mind in the bio-protocol prepared for the T20 World Cup. What happens if a player or official is infected? What do fans have to do before entering the stadium?
How will players and teams enter the Bio-Bubble?
Teams coming to participate in the T20 World Cup will have to compulsorily stay in isolation for 6 days. During this period there will be 3 corona tests of players and members of support staff. That’s why this is being done. In order to ensure that no one entering the next stage of the tournament is infected.
What if someone gets infected in the Bio-Bubble?
According to the ICC’s bio-protocol, if the player or someone else in the bio-bubble is infected with the corona virus. Even if symptoms are not visible in it. He will have to isolate himself for 10 days.
What will happen to people who come in contact with the infected?
The ICC has clearly defined the person who came in contact with the infected. The same person will be considered as close contact of the infected, who is not wearing a mask and has been less than 2 meters from the infected for at least 15 minutes and 48 hours before the test/symptom. In such a situation, even close contacts will have to remain isolated for 6 days. At the same time, the person who may have come in contact with the infected by chance. But if he is wearing a mask while coming in contact, then he will be isolated for 24 hours and will be released after the test report comes negative.
What if the player has to release the Bio-Bubble to go to the hospital?
The ICC has set up separate bio-secure hospitals for the player to not be able to make a dent in the bio-bubble along with the corona. The protocol will be strictly followed in this.
Does the audience need to be fully vaccinated?
In Oman and Abu Dhabi, spectators will be required to take both doses of the corona vaccine to watch the match while sitting in the stadium. But this will not happen in Dubai and Sharjah. At the same time, spectators will have to keep masks in the stadium at all times.
