Tokyo, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 26th Jul, 2021 ) :The Dutch rowing team is self-isolating at the Tokyo Olympics after a spate of coronavirus infections in the camp, director Hessel Evertse said on Monday.
Coach Josy Verdonkschot is quarantining after testing positive for Covid-19 following a positive test for 21-year-old men's single sculls competitor Finn Florijn. Last week a staff member on the team also tested positive.
High-performance director of rowing Evertse said the Netherlands team had decided to take the action.
"As there are no official close contacts there is no official need to do what we do," he said.
"In good understanding we agreed with the IF (international federation) and OC (national Olympic committee) to take these measures.
"In order to get trust and confidence with other countries and especially the volunteers we are happy to cooperate.
