Rishabh Pant joins India's bio-bubble after recovering from Covid-19

It is believed that the wicketkeeper might have picked up the Delta 3 variant while visiting a dentist for a toothache problem

India wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant has recovered from Covid-19 and has joined the Indian team in its bio-secure bubble ahead of the Test series against England. Pant, who had tested positive for the virus has completed his 10-day mandatory quarantine and has also produced two negative RT-PCR tests, along with proper cardio check-ups, which were made compulsory before joining the bubble.

"Hello @RishabhPant17, great to have you back," the BCCI said in a tweet, along with Pant's photo, on Thursday (July 22).

Pant tested positive while he was staying at an acquaintance's place in Southall. He had developed mild Symptoms before he was found to be Covid-19 positive. 

According to sources, Pant might have picked up the Delta 3 variant while visiting a dentist for a toothache problem, contrary to earlier reports that his presence at the Euro Championships could have led to him catching the infection.

After Pant tested positive, BCCI Secretary Jay Shah had sent a cautionary letter to the Indian contingent, asking the players to avoid crowded gatherings like Wimbledon and Euro matches.

The Indian team is currently playing a warm-up match against a County XI side here, before the first Test of the five-match series begins on August 4 at Trent Bridge, Nottingham.
