Uganda Cranes and Smouha striker Derrick Nsibambi has confirmed recovering from Covid19.
The former KCCA FC forward tested positive for the virus in July with his teammate Mohammed Koffi and the duo were sent home to self quarantine.
Nsibambi has posted on his Facebook that “finally am back” and added that he has been allowed to train with the team after testing negative.
All teams in the Egypt Premier League were obliged to run three rounds of PCR tests before league resumption, the EFA earlier announced.
On Tuesday, EFA postponed a Premier League game scheduled for Saturday between El-Entag El-Harby and FC Masr after 19 coronavirus cases were detected at Entag.
EFA ha said that they cannot expect any similar outbreaks at other clubs and the discovery of such a big number of infections at one club is considered medical negligence and will call for severe punishments.
Egypt is home to other Ugandan players like Lumala Abdul (Pyramids) and Emmanuel Okwi (Al Ittihad).
Nsibambi’s Smouha will face Al Mokawloon Al Arab on August 13 at home before a trip to ENPPI four days later.
Smouha are sixth with 25 points from 18 games in the Egypt Premier League.
