The situation is slowly starting to get complicated in the bio bubble, with FC Goa’s Edu Bedia speaking out about the issue in particular. As fixtures continue to get postponed due to coronavirus outbreaks in camps, there is an argument that the league as a whole should be postponed to deal with the situation, and the rise in cases could justify such a step.
