In
the
past
week,
we
have
witnessed
several
positive
cases
of
athletes
and
ace
cueist
Pankaj
Advani
is
the
latest
sportsperson
to
test
positive
for
Covid.
The
world
champion
tested
positive
on
Sunday
(January
9).

In
an
official
media
communique,
Pankaj
stated
that
he
woke
up
with
a
fever
and
uncontrollable
shivering
in
the
morning.
To
confirm
if
he
was
infected
with
the
virus,
Pankaj
tested
himself
with
the
home
test
kit
and
the
results
indicated
that
he
was
Covid
positive.

The
ace
cueist
stressed
the
fact
that
he
contracted
the
virus
despite
following
all
the
safety
precautions.
While
talking
about
his
condition,
Pankaj
said,
“Despite
taking
all
precautions,
I
ended
up
getting
infected.
I
have
never
experienced
this
kind
of
shivering
and
thought
of
testing
myself
and
the
results
were
positive.
It’s
my
humble
request
to
everyone
that
please
stay
safe
and
don’t
take
unnecessary
risks.
These
are
tough
times
for
all
of
us.
Hopefully,
I’ll
recover
in
a
week.”

The
‘King
of
Green
Baize’ had
put
up
a
brilliant
performance
in
the
64th
National
Billiards
championship
in
Bhopal
and
made
headlines
after
winning
the
National
Billiards
title.
It
was
one
of
the
longest
tournaments
held
at
the
prestigious
Sage
University.

He
was
preparing
for
the
upcoming
international
tournament,
the
IBSF
World
Snooker
Championship
that
was
originally
scheduled
to
take
place
in
January.
But,
the
rising
cases
of
Omicron
has
postponed
the
championship
to
March.

India
reported
a
rise
of
1,79,723
COVID-19
cases
on
Monday.
The
number
of
active
cases
has
increased
to
7,23,619,
the
highest
in
around
204
days,
while
the
death
toll
has
climbed
to
4,83,936
with
146
fatalities
reported
this
morning
by
the
health
ministry.

In
the
wake
of
the
rising
number
of
cases,
the
Sports
Authority
of
India
(SAI)
on
Monday
decided
to
close
its
67
training
centres
across
the
country.
However,
national
camps
for
elite
athletes
will
continue
in
bio-bubbles.

The
decision
will
not
impact
the
National
Centres
of
Excellence
(NCOE)
like
the
ones
in
Patiala
and
Bengaluru
where
camps
for
elite
athletes
are
in
progress
across
multiple
disciplines.
“In
view
of
rising
cases
of
COVID-19,
the
Sports
Authority
of
India
has
decided
to
close
the
67
SAI
Training
centres
across
the
country,” the
SAI
said
in
a
statement.
