During the night the number of people affected by the virus rose to 14 and they were relocated to quarantine for 14 days inside the hotel where the team was staying, after consultation with the local health authority.
These 14 people had been in close contact with the one who tested positive for the virus and during this 14-day quarantine period, they will be followed by senior team staff who will take care of them.
Tests will be done to anyone who presents the symptoms of the virus and in case of positivity to the test they will be immediately self-isolated.
The other McLaren members who tested negative will then be able to return to the paddocks to get back all the equipment and they will be forced to return to the UK.
Once they arrive in the UK they cannot under any circumstances return to the McLaren Technology Centre for at least 14 days.
These are the precautions taken to incorporate the virus so as not to have other infections at all.
