“It actually covers three key points. The first is to take a swab from the nasopharynx on day zero. After the fifth day, we take the second swab and in parallel with the fifth day we do serological tests,” said Professor Dragan Primorac.

About 35 people per club must be tested, in addition to the players, the professional staff, the chief doctor and the physiotherapist are also included. The model is also recognized by the umbrella organizations of European and world football.

“This morning I had conversations with FIFA leaders who chose this model of ours for presentation as a standard model when testing all FIFA members,” said Primorac.

Dinamo showed what the whole procedure looks like by filming its medical service taking swabs of players and members of the first team staff.

The results of all tests should be ready before the first preparatory matches.
