Also on Thursday, the Bolivian Football Association said two players tested positive, defender Oscar Ribera and forward Jaume Cuéllar.
Bolivian striker Marcelo Martins, who used his Instagram account to criticize CONMEBOL for the COVID-19 cases, backtracked in a statement.
“Regrettably my concern for my situation contracting COVID-19, which stopped me from playing with my beloved national team at their first match at Copa America… was incorrectly interpreted by those who manage my public communications,” Martins wrote.
Chile’s team also said one of its members was diagnosed with the virus, was without symptoms, and isolated, but did not provide more details.
Half of the teams playing the Copa America have reported COVID-19 cases; Venezuela, Bolivia, Colombia, Peru and Chile.
