          Turkish side Beşiktaş have reported multiple cases of COVID-19 with their Süper Lig season set to start in the coming weeks, despite the club setting up futuristic looking ‘disinfection booths’ around their training ground.

          Earlier this week the Turkish football federation had confirmed a June 12th start date for the resumption of their top flight, after reporting a relatively low number of coronavirus related deaths for such a large population. 

          Fifth placed Beşiktaş, the side of former Premier League regulars Mohamed Elneny and Kevin Prince Boateng, have come up with a novel solution to help their players return to training corona-free, and that comes in the form of these sci-fi looking disinfection booths.

          Unfortunately for Beşiktaş though, they have had a player and staff member test positive for the virus, although both cases were confirmed before the booths were set up on the way into the club’s training ground.

          The booths are designed by Turkish software company Etisan, and while on the face of it, it may look unnecessary, there have been multiple studies confirming that the virus can live on clothing, making public transport where transference is rife very problematic.

          Football associations across Europe are dealing with infections differently, with the entire squad of second division German side, Dynamo Dresden, being put into a two week quarantine following an outbreak, while the Premier League and other divisions are solely putting those who tested positive into self-isolation.
