Official: Kimmich has to go into quarantine again

For the second time in less than two weeks, Joshua Kimmich has to go into quarantine He is thus missing from FC Bayern for the time being

Although he is healthy, Joshua Kimmich still has to wait for his next competitive match. Shortly after the quarantine, which was ordered on 8 November because of his contact with the infected Niklas Süle, expired, the FC Bayern midfielder already has to start the next one.

On Thursday morning, Kimmich was absent from Bayern’s training session as a precautionary measure because he had contact with a suspected Corona patient in his private life. Now their PCR test has brought certainty: because it turned out positive, Kimmich must go into quarantine as an unvaccinated contact person.

Kimmich will be missing at least in Augsburg and in Kiev

According to the current regulations in Bavaria, he can take time off “at the earliest at the end of day seven”, provided he does not develop any symptoms. Accordingly, the 26-year-old international, who has already missed the international matches against Liechtenstein (9:0) and in Armenia (4:1) due to quarantine, will be out for at least the away matches at FC Augsburg on Friday and Dynamo Kiev on Tuesday.

“It is not completely unlikely with the current numbers that you will also meet someone who has Corona,” coach Julian Nagelsmann said on Thursday of Kimmich’s momentous contact. “We don’t live in Alaska, where a moose passes by every 750 kilometres and a human every 1400 kilometres, but in a civilisation. “

At the same time, Kimmich and the other unvaccinated players in the Bayern squad would know very well that for them the danger of “missing matches and training sessions is significantly greater. That’s on the table. “
