The previous weekly record was 90 cases, the BBC reported.

“The Premier League’s Covid-19 emergency measures include protocols such as wearing face coverings while indoors, observing social distancing, limiting treatment time, as well as the increased testing,” read a statement from the Premier League.

“The league is continuing to work with clubs to keep people safe by helping mitigate the risks of Covid-19 within their squads.

“We are also liaising closely with the government, local authorities and supporter groups, while being responsive to any future changes to national or local guidance,” it added.

As many as 15 games have been called off so far in the month due to the outbreak of the virus. However, the Premier League and EFL clubs chose to go ahead and complete the fixtures.

Last week, 20 clubs met to discuss the games following the back-to-back postponements. The clubs were advised to fulfil their games if they have 13 fit players and a goalkeeper.
