The Premier League is looking to keep all measures when it comes to safety of football players and will not tolerate coughs intentionally done at opposition players. Anyone found wanting will be sent off. What’s more, if it’s serious enough, it could end up in the English courts.

If this happens and a player coughs at someone else, they wouldn’t just get a red card. This source explains that they run the risk of being spoken to by the police. The coronavirus is very serious and, whoever takes a chance with it, could pay quite dearly in the Premier League.
