Organizers of Winter Olympics in Beijing said Friday that two foreign athletes had tested positive for COVID-19 in ongoing test events for the Games.
 

The two who tested positive are among 1,500 competitors and staff who have come into the country since the test events began in early October, said Huang Chun, the deputy director general of the pandemic prevention office for the Games.
 

He didn't identify them or their country, but said they had come on a chartered plane for luge training and the World Cup. Neither showed symptoms, and both were allowed to train, but they had to stay in a quarantine hotel and eat their meals alone.
 

Entry China is restricted, and virtually everyone who does must quarantine in a hotel for at least two weeks, even if they are vaccinated and test negative.
 

The quarantine requirement is being waived for the test events and the Games, but participants must live and compete in isolation from the rest of the population in China.
 

2外籍运动员核酸阳性,冬奥组委:连续2次检测阴性后可参赛

11月12日上午,北京冬奥组委举行新闻吹风会,介绍国际测试赛阶段情况。北京冬奥组委疫情防控办公室副主任黄春表示,从10月5日“相约北京”系列国际测试赛开展以来,有2位外籍运动员新冠病毒核酸检测呈阳性。
 

据黄春介绍,11月4日,一位外籍运动员包机参加测试赛的雪橇训练周和雪橇世界杯,在入境海关的核酸检测中显示阳性,到了驻地复检后仍呈阳性,被医院诊断为无症状感染者。
 

按照防疫手册的严格要求,在专家团队进行评估后,该运动员被送到专门的隔离酒店,包括他的密切接触者,使用单独的房间、单独的交通车辆并单独用餐。
 

在这期间,该运动员每天要接受严格的健康监测、核酸检测和做好个人防护。黄春举例,除了训练、睡觉、吃饭、喝水不戴口罩外,其他环境下都要求戴N95口罩,同时要求他保持社交距离,减少人员之间聚集,包括肢体身体方面接触。
 

黄春还透露,11月11日,在每天例行核酸检测中,前一病例的密接者中有一名核酸检测呈阳性,后被诊断为无症状感染者,目前已被送到专门的隔离设施,进行隔离监测。
 

“密切接触者每天要做两次核酸,假如都是阴性,不影响他们正常训练和比赛,整个流程都是在一个闭环管理区域进行。”黄春说,通过频繁核酸检测,能够早发现、早隔离、早阻断。截止目前,1000多名运动员出现2例病例,其余运动员都正常训练,没有任何症状,总体健康状况良好。
 

关于核酸呈阳性的运动员是否还能继续参赛的问题,黄春回应称,按照防疫手册,选手连续2次检测呈阴性后,可以正常参加比赛。
