The statement added: "In line with the UCI protocol, a new series of PCR control tests will be carried out on the second rest day on 19 October."

The Grand Tour was reeling from the withdrawals of Mitchelton-Scott and Team Jumbo-Visma on Tuesday after positive Covid-19 cases, with doubts surfacing over whether the race can make it to the finish in Milan on October 25.

In the last few days EF Pro Cycling canvassed organisers and teams to get the race stopped early due to the coronavirus situation.
