An eighth player for the New York Yankees was tested positive for Covid-19 despite the fact that he, like seven other members of the club, was vaccinated last month, announced the North American League Baseball (MLB) franchise on Thursday.
Gleyber Torres, who already got the virus a few months ago, had received the disposable vaccine from Johnson & Johnson. This workforce epidemic is being studied closely by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The club had been given permission to relax in certain protocols related to Covid-19 after 85% of the organization had been vaccinated. For example, there was no longer an obligation to remain in quarantine after being in close contact with a person who tested positive.
In addition to Torres, pitching coach Matt Blake, third base coach Phil Nevin, first base coach Reggie Willits and four Yankees tournaments have tested positive in recent days. All monitor quarantine in Tampa, Florida, while MLB, its medical experts and New York State Department of Health officials advise and assist the Yankees.
