‘Of these, zero have tested positive.’

Last week, the league announced just one person had tested positive in the second round of testing since the resumption of the league on Jun 17. 

That one individual from the last round of testing who returned a positive result would have since completed the mandatory seven-day isolation period in line with Premier League and government guidelines.
