Brazil’s government has confirmed an increase in the number of COVID-19 cases connected with the Copa America football tournament.

A statement read 82 people had now contracted the virus, an increase of 16 infections from the previous day.

Brazil’s health ministry said 37 players were infected, with 45 staffers and workers also affected from the 10 tournament teams.

All four host cities of the tournament, Rio de Janeiro, Brasilia, Cuiaba and Goiania, have cases relating to the tournament.

Brazil stepped in as an emergency host despite the country having the second highest number of recorded deaths from the coronavirus in the world, nearing 500,000, with the national team’s players protesting against the decision.

Half of the teams playing in the Copa America have reported COVID-19 cases – Venezuela, Bolivia, Colombia, Peru and Chile.

On Thursday, the Bolivian Football Association said two of their players had tested positive, defender Oscar Ribera and forward Jaume Cuellar.
