MotoGP's first case of coronavirus has been detected in the paddock at the Czech Grand Prix in Brno, organizers said Saturday.

The positive case was returned by a staff member of Dorna Sports, the world championship promoter.

However, the individual is asymptomatic.

"After more than 5,500 tests performed on all paddock personnel before their attendance at the Spanish, Andalucia and Czech GPs, one person in the paddock has tested positive for Covid-19," said a statement.

"The result was returned during testing undertaken ahead of the Austrian Grand Prix [August 16]. The person is a member of Dorna Sports team and is asymptomatic."

The individual is now self-isolating at their hotel.

"As a precautionary measure, the championship has taken the decision to test any persons in secondary contact with the individual and each of them has returned a negative result," added the organizers.
