Bigetron Esports (BTR) posted on their social media accounts several photos of the team strolling around Dubai, like how tourists were doing it before the COVID-19 pandemic: no masks, no social distancing.
The PMGC Finals had sudden changes in the staging of the event after three players, allegedly from BTR, tested positive of COVID-19 the day before the games started. Instead of having it at the Coca-Cola Arena, the finals happened inside the players’ own rooms as they were placed in mandatory self-quarantine.
The event is already was concluded today and PMGC organizers still remain silent on the issue. Up to date, contact tracing efforts remain a mystery.
Question arise regarding safety of participants from COVID-19 during the event.
