MLB players hit 47 consecutive days without a positive COVID-19 test

Read Time:45 Second


NEW YORK — Major League Baseball’s postseason bubble appears to be working as a defense against the coronavirus.

MLB players extended their streak of consecutive days with no new positive COVID-19 tests to 47 through Thursday.

Players did not have positive tests in 55 of the previous 56 days, the commissioner’s office said Friday.

There were no positive tests among 5,026 samples collected in the week.

MLB has collected 169,143 samples overall, of which 91 have been positive, or 0.05%.

Fifty-seven of 91 positives have been players, and 21 of the 30 teams have had a person covered by the monitoring test positive.

The eight teams that reached the division series entered bubble environments and have played at neutral sites in the hope of minimizing exposure to the virus. Teams that advance will remain in bubble environments until their seasons end.
