China Withdraws All Representatives from Swiss Open 2022

 The Chinese badminton team withdrew from the 2022 Swiss Open due to the Covid-19 case and player injuries. In addition, there are several other names that have withdrawn. "The China Badminton Association reported several positive cases and several players in their team were injured," the BWF said in a statement. "In view of concerns for the welfare and safety of all tournament participants, Team China has withdrawn all of their players from the YONEX Swiss Open 2022." 

Some of the Chinese representatives who withdrew were the first seeds in three numbers, namely women's singles Chen Yufei, women's doubles Chen Qingchen/Jia Yifan, and mixed doubles Wang Yilyu/Huang Dongping. Some of them were replaced by qualifiers. Otherwise, the opponent immediately wins the walkout. Other names that have withdrawn from the Swiss Open are the men's singles seeds, namely Loh Kean Yew (Singapore), Ng Ka Long (Hong Kong), and Lakshya Sen (India). Indonesia also lost Gregoria Mariska Tunjung in the women's singles sector due to Covid-19.

 The Head of Binpres PP PBSI, Rionny Mainaky, said that Gregoria Mariska Tunjung did not feel well. The complaint was expressed by the 22-year-old badminton player upon his arrival at All England, England. "On March 20, he felt a fever and sore throat," said Rionny in a PBSI release received by Liputan6.com Tuesday, March 22. 

"That day we also had a PCR test in Birmingham for departure to Switzerland or return to Jakarta. And Grego's result was positive," he continued. Currently, Gregoria has to undergo quarantine in Birmingham, England, because he tested positive for Covid-19. He was accompanied by the PBSI doctor, dr. Grace Joselini Corlesa.
