PLMC Public Relations Officer, Qamako Mahao said Linare management took the entire team for COVID-19 testing last week after some of their players had shown symptoms of the pandemic.
Four of the players later tested positive. This was after a midweek league game between Linare and Kick4Life.
Mahao said after receiving the results, PLMC suspended this weekend league fixture between the two clubs.
“The two teams’ fixture will remain suspended until further notice,” he also said.
This is the first time players from the 16 Premier League clubs tested positive for COVID-19 since the virus broke out in Lesotho last year.
