Indian shuttlers Saina Nehwal and HS Prannoy have been allowed to resume their Thailand Open campaign after their “antibody IgG” was positive, the Badminton World Federation said in a statement. “A positive antibody test means a person has been infected with the COVID-19 virus at some point in the past. It does not mean they are currently infected,” said BWF in a statement. Apart from Nehwal and Prannoy, Germany’s Jones Ralfy Jansen, who had also tested positive for Covid-19 has also been cleared to participate due to a positive antibody IgG.
