Preventative COVID-19 measures imposed in Brazil indicate that any travelers who visited the UK at anytime 14 days prior to their arrival in the South American country must undergo a 14-day quarantine on arrival.

A World Cup qualifier match between Brazil and Argentina was abruptly suspended on Sunday after officials determined that four players had broken quarantine rules that had been implemented to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Brazilian officials had singled out four players from the Argentine team who had reportedly broken preventative COVID-19 protocols. Reports indicate that the offending players had traveled from the UK, three of whom play in England's Premier League.

Video of the incident shows players gathering around a group of Brazilian health officials who had invaded the pitch to single out the four players. Coverage from the game revealed that authorities were attempting to round of the group and have them deported.

Argentina's players subsequently walked off the grounds once the game was stopped. The events took place just a few minutes into the match. It remains unclear whether the game will be resumed.
