3 Dota 2 pros test positive for Covid-19 only a week before The International

Just over a week before the start of the Dota 2 world championship tournament known as The International, Team Aster has announced on Weibo that three players—named by JoinDOTA as carry Du “Monet” Peng, offlaner Lin “Xxs” Jing and support Ye “BoBoKa” Zhibiao—along with coach Cheng “Mad” Han and other staff members have all tested positive for Covid-19. 

Team Aster was staying in the same hotel as four other Chinese teams taking part in The International, whose members have not shown symptoms and are now awaiting test results. A Google translation of the original Weibo post says the positive Team Aster players are “asymptomatic [or] mildly ill.” The team is now in isolation and communicating with tournament organizers about the next steps.
