  Vikings OL Dru Samia tests positive for COVID-19 Vikings offensive lineman Dru Samia has tested positive for COVID-19. Contact tracing is being performed, and Samia and anyone deemed a high-risk contact will not be permitted to travel with the team for tomorrow night’s game against the Bears. © Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports Samia, a 2019 fourth-rounder, started four games for Minnesota earlier this year before returning to a reserve role. But the Vikings just released Pat Elflein and now find themselves without their top backup at guard. Plus, there is a good chance that there will indeed be high-risk contacts given the nature of O-line/D-line play.

Germany's three-time wrestling world champion Frank Staebler says he is struggling to recover from a lung problem caused by the coronavirus, which has forced him out of next month's planned World Cup in Belgrade.

Staebler won the third gold of his career in the 72kg category when the 2018 world championships were held in Budapest.

After a season disrupted by the Covid-19 pandemic, Staebler had hoped to compete at the World Cup, scheduled for December 12-20, until he contracted the virus.

Images from a Covid -19 intensive care unit in New Delhi where hospital beds are becoming scarce with the rise in virus cases. Delhi is "bursting beyond its seams", warns a doctor treating patients. India is the second worst-infected nation after the United States with more than 9.1 million virus cases.

"I'm having a hard time with it. I want to fight, I'm in the final spurt of my career," Staebler, who is based near Stuttgart, told AFP subsidiary SID.

The 31-year-old caught the illness in October.

However, after a two-week quarantine, he noticed something was wrong when he returned to light training.

Staebler estimates his lung capacity is 20 percent down compared to before he fell ill.

"I had mild symptoms, like a slight cold. I couldn't taste or smell anything," he said.

However, when he returned to training "during a stress test, I had a real slump, my pump (heart) was burning like hell".

A diagnostic test revealed his lungs were affected, which he treats with a spray.

Competing in Belgrade was not an option.

"I had so hoped to go," he said, "it was intended as an interim goal on the way to the (2021) Olympics in Tokyo. I need the competitions."

Having failed to win medals at London 2012 and Rio de Janeiro 2016, Staebler wants one more chance at an Olympic medal if the summer Games go ahead as planned in Japan next July.

Staebler hopes to compete at the European Championships next February in Poland, when he should have fully recovered from Covid and a persistent shoulder injury.

He issued a warning to anyone dismissive of the virus.

"I can only say to young people who feel as unassailable as I did... even for non-risk groups there can be severe consequences," he told Frankfurt-based newspaper FAZ.

"I want to serve as a warning, which is why I have made my illness public."
