The Tour passes the second coronavirus test: 785 negatives

The race reported that all the tests were negative and the competition continues without casualties. The Tour director returned after passing the illness.

Of the 841 PCR tests performed for the first day of rest, 785 of the second. Of the six positive for COVID-19 in the first wave of tests, none in the second. The Tour will have no problems finishing in Paris and the bubble of the race seems to be preserved intact, despite the fact that the official figures do not add up and there are some doubts about the reliability of the results. In La Rochelle, four auxiliaries, from Ineos, Ag2r, Mitchelton and Cofidis, a worker from the organization and Christian Prudhomme, director of the round, tested positive. Before taking the start in Nice, two cases were detected in the Lotto Soudal.

Prudhomme returned to car number one after testing negative for the virus. He remained isolated last week, like Jean Castex, as a precaution, since the French prime minister (always negative) shared a day in the Pyrenees with him. Tomorrow, Emmanuel Macron, President of France, will join. The Ministry of Health of his Government decided that two adverse results, whether from the technical staff or the riders, would mean the immediate expulsion from the Tour ... but not in a period of seven days, but in the same batch of controls. Lotto Soudal left Nice because protocols were still being negotiated when their cases occurred.
