Marine Cabirou Tests Positive for COVID-19 & Will Not Race Until World Champs

Sep 1, 2020
by James Smurthwaite  

Marine Cabirou announced on Instagram yesterday that she has tested positive for COVID-19 but is hoping to return to racing at the World Championships in Leogang.

Cabirou first suspected she had the disease when she found it difficult to recover from the French Championships in Les Menuires. She took a test the day after the race and received her positive result last week.

Marine Cabirou has been riding with aggression this year and it s great to watch.

Cabirou is now in quarantine and is aiming to recover in time for the World Championships, which is currently scheduled for October 9-11. She will not miss any World Cup racing as all events up until then have already been cancelled.

bigquotesMy face when I learn my COVID-19 PCR test is positive. One week ago after French Champs, I stayed super tired the day after the race, so we decided to do a PCR test.

I am not the style of giving up a race that easily, but I had no choice! My tiredness was persistent while I was doing my best to recover and then I received the result of my test which was positive, this is why I didn’t race at the last French Cup in Metabief. So I decided to go back home for my quarantine period, to recover at best and wait until better days come.

One week after I feel a bit better but stay a bit tired. Some days are better than others, but I haven’t really the energy to train, I’m directly out of breath!

Yes, I only needed one race to catch the virus, my first race of the year. So take care of you guys, stay safe and be careful! After my shoulder injury, now the virus, I will take time to be back at my best and be ready for the World Championships!
Marine Cabirou

We wish Marine the best of luck in her recovery and hope to see her back on the bike racing soon.

A note on the comments

COVID-19 is a serious global health risk, and while we don't want to limit the conversation we're going to actively remove disinformation and suspend people who continue to post it.

"Detection of viral RNA may not indicate the presence of infectious virus or that 2019-nCoV is the
causative agent for clinical symptoms."

This means that you may test positive because of fragments of viral RNA remaining but not still be infectious, i.e in the recovery stage. It also means presence of the virus does not mean you are not ill with something else as well.

"The performance of this test has not been established for monitoring treatment of 2019-nCoV

I take this to mean the test is qualitative and not quantitative, it is not useful for monitoring progression of potential treatments for SARS-CoV-2, it's a yes/no test.

"The performance of this test has not been established for screening of blood or blood products
for the presence of 2019-nCoV."

The test is performed on a throat/bose swab and not on blood so this makes perfect sense. It'd be much easier if we could test blood as it's much easier to take a representative sample than nose/throat swabs which sometimes miss +ve patients.

All of the points you have posted seem to make sense and fit within the widely accepted scientific narrative, nothing seems to me to contradict it?

Both are killing themselves and blaming everyone else. The actual majority (most Americans) are sitting quietly somewhere in the middle watching these two toddlers do battle on the main stage making a fool of every one. It's literally a VERY SMALL minority of idiots of all flavors of life that are making the whole country look stupid. They just happen to be getting the most press.

 @timmyelle: Yes this is fake news or at least being taken incorrectly.

The CDC stats showed that 6% of deaths attributed to Covid-19 had that as the sole and only cause listed on the death certificate.

94% of deaths had other conditions listed, which may have been pre-existing (but common enough) things like diabetes or hypertension or may have been direct results of the Covid-19 illness such as pneumonia or respiratory distress. People may have been perfectly healthy and developed these conditions as a result of the Covid-19 infection.

So it is not accurate to say that only 6% of the deaths were really, or only from Covid-19.

What I find truly amazing is that you immediately think that I am a crazy libtard because I think that a virus that has lead to 185k deaths (I know, I know fake number) is a serious issue. But good job, watch some more faux and brighfart, I highly doubt you know the slightest about my political leanings. Having compassion should be a standard American feeling.

 Believe me when I tell you and yes, we have THE BEST of people working on this issue. We have had a TREMENDOUS response and the TESTING has been so much BIGGER than anywhere else. I ask "Why don't other countries test as much as we do?" and they tell me we have the BEST TESTING in fact I hear the other day that we had the most—and and yes some people have tested positive—but our TESTING is amazing and most of all we're staying calm and don't forget that our ECONOMY is the STRONGEST ever! You look back and say, how was the economy doing five years ago and now we have a global pandemic and it's the best? We are doing amazing things just don't listen to SLEEPY JOE!

 @Jaiello: Thank you for that comment. People need to stop thinking this is a joke, fake news, a conspiracy to get Biden elected etc. yeah Marine is part of a global conspiracy. The ridiculousness of this whole conspiracy thing is mind boggling. Couldn’t it just be something like “We have a new type of virus that has an extremely easy transmission rate, further exacerbated by the fact that many carriers are asymptomatic. A great adaptation if you’re a virus btw. Rapid transmission of this virus has resulted in a pandemic. If you contract the virus and exhibit symptoms you have a fairly high potential to become seriously ill with long term effects and or die. There is no vaccine yet for this virus although several types are in development and being tested.” Is there something so outlandish with that set of circumstances that we need to concoct weird conspiracies to explain a seriously nasty virus??? WTF?
  • 9 0
 @fattyheadshok: exactly. A pandemic was always top of the list of potential global disasters, as agreed by the experts (yes, there is such a thing). Unfortunately we feel so isolated from so many risks in our perfect e-world that when something almost inevitable like Covid occurs, we can't just accept that nature (with a little accidental help) can f*ck us up at random, it has to be a conspiracy. We need the reassurance that someone is in control of our demise. We can't just a collection of atoms flying through space, vulnerable to all manner of species-ending possibilities. It's why religion was invented. The idea of there being nobody at the helm is just too scary. So God created kooks like Alex Jones, David Icke and DJT. Problem is, he didn't think of the big picture.

 Let be real the symptoms showed at the last day of the race weekend. The infection occurs 14+ days before symptoms occur. More likely the injured rider who has been in contact with medical professionals of all kinds while rehabbing from injury was infected well before this race started and potentially spread it to anyone she came in contact with while at French Champs.

This is sad news to read about. I hope she recovers quickly and that her infection doesn't have any long term or lifelong impact on her respitory system.

Certain people who got covid-19 experienced issues months after they had gotten over covid-19.

It's a serious problem that I wish we all would take seriously. Regardless of age, sex, ethnicity and political beliefs. In the beginning I thought this would unite us as a whole but instead it has brought so much division.

 @jrocksdh: Not correct. If you tell them you've ever been arrested, even without conviction, and even for stealing a hot dog, you're banned for life unless you get a visa waiver, which is expensive, temporary and a pain in the ass to get and takes months.
