New Delhi, May 8 (MNN) Seven members of the Indian women’s hockey team, including captain Rani Rampal, and two support staff have recovered from COVID-19 infection.

They were quarantined for around two weeks at the Sports Authority of India’s (SAI) Centre in Bengaluru.

The six players are Savita Punia, Sharmila Devi, Rajani, Navjot Kaur, Navneet Kaur and Sushila, apart from video analyst Amrutaprakash and scientific adviser Wayne Lombard.

The 25-member women’s hockey core probable group for the Tokyo Olympic Games had gathered in Bengaluru for a training camp.

These nine tested positive after tests were conducted on April 24 as they returned to the camp from their hometowns after a 10-day break.

All the players and support staff were asymptomatic, but isolated and kept under medical observation.

Rani said on her Twitter handle: “Thank you everyone for the love and mental support through messages/calls during the last two weeks. Me and my teammates and support staff are fully recovered from the COVID now.

“Feeling blessed to have you all as members from our hockey fraternity/friends/fans. Special thanks to Hockey India and SAI for taking good care of us.”
