Former GHC National Champion Kenoh missed Pro Wrestling NOAH’s show on 4/18 due to a fever. It was later determined that Kenoh tested positive for COVID-19 via a PCR test that he took on the 17th. Manabu Soya, Haou and Tadasuke are suspected to have been in close contact with Kenoh.

There will be another round of tests conducted today but all four men are off NOAH’s 4/24 and 4/29 shows. NOAH issued the following statement at the conclusion of their announcement concerning Kenoh:

Noah will continue the measures against infectious diseases that it has been working on, and will ensure the safety of athletes, staff, and related parties by conducting regular PCR tests by private laboratories, retesting at medical institutions, and taking measures in accordance with infection control guidance. At the same time, we will strive to create an environment where visitors can watch the game with greater peace of mind than ever before.
