Belgian Team Liquid player Nabil “Nivera” Benrlitom has tested positive for COVID-19 only two days before the beginning of VALORANT Champions, the most esteemed competition of the year for Riot Games’ FPS.
Nivera will probably play in the $1 million competition regardless of testing positive, as per Upcomer. Fluid will begin their mission on Thursday, Dec. 1 against KRU Esports, and the game probably won’t happen on the opposition’s stage because of Nivera’s positive test. VALORANT Champions will be held in a LAN climate in Berlin, Germany.
Riot utilized PCR testing and Nivera’s returned positive as of late at the competition area. He contracted COVID-19 half a month prior and has since recuperated from it, as indicated by Upcomer. If the experimental outcome is affirmed, Nivera could need to do a quarantine as Germany’s health and safety protocols.
Nivera is a somewhat new expansion to Liquid’s crew, having joined the Dutch association to play close by his sibling Adil “Shout” Benrlitom in September instead of James “Kryptix” Affleck, who passed on the dynamic arrangement to manage private matters.
The COVID-19 pandemic has spiked again in Germany, where VALORANT rank Champions are being held. Cases have soared in the European nation following the spike in the landmass recently. Germany has had 1,196,181 announced instances of the Covid throughout the beyond 28 days, as indicated by the COVID-19 dashboard from the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University.
