A day after the first positive Covid test linked to this year's Eurovision Song Contest in the Netherlands was reported, a second positive case has been announced, APA reports citing BBC.

A member of the Icelandic delegation tested positive for Covid-19 during routine screening on Sunday, the competition organisers announced

Alongside a member of the Polish delegation whose positive test was announced on Saturday, they will now isolate and both countries' delegations will quarantine and undergo testing.

Neither delegation will attend the planned "turquoise" carpet event scheduled for later.

Organsiers have gone to extreme lengths to protect this year's contest, the final of which airs on 22 May, after it was cancelled last year at the height of the first wave.
