Uganda Cranes striker Derrick Nsibambi has tested positive for Coronavirus, reports have said.
Nsibambi is one of the two cases that have been reported by Egypt Premier League side Smouha SC, according to African Sports journalist Nuuhu.
Nsibambi’s teammate Mohammed Koffi has also reportedly tested positive, but the Club is yet to confirm the development.
Nsibambi, formerly at KCCA FC, reunited with Smouha in January this year.
In similar developments, Entag El-Harby FC have found 18 positive coronavirus cases.
If this comes to pass, Nsibambi and other cases will be required to self isolate for about 10 days before going another PCR test.
All Egypt Premier league clubs were asked to run three rounds of PCR tests before the resumption of the league that returns on August 6, 2020.
Many teams have resumed group training sessions in the Egypt Premier League.
Egypt, home to other Uganda players Lumala Abdul (Pyramids) and Emmanuel Okwi (Al Ittihad), is one of the most affected countries in Africa by Covid19 pandemic.
