Watford manager Nigel Pearson has commented on the health of defender Adrian Mariappa after he was found positive of COVID-19, saying the defender is feeling well, and that this just shows the virus can affect people in different ways.
Pearson told Sky Sports News: "When I saw him for the test last week, I was sitting in the car park chatting to players as he came past so I had a chance to touch base with most of them.
"He looks exceptionally well and feels very well himself so I think it's an example of how this virus can affect people in different ways.
"He's following the advice and recommendations and isolating for a week. His family are all okay as well. I have no doubts in his case he'll be fine when he comes back in."
The Watford players were tested for a second time on Friday and Pearson says the mood in the camp is positive as they prepare to resume their fight against Premier League relegation.
Testing will continue to take place in other clubs as well, and the Premier League will continue to publish the league-wide results, although the information will not be provided on specific clubs or individuals.
