Sao Paulo, Brazil (CNN)At least 140 positive Covid-19 cases have been detected among players, members of delegations and service providers since the beginning of the Copa America tournament in Brazil on June 13, according to the country's health ministry.

Brazil was chosen to host the football tournament earlier this month despite concerns about the country's still uncontrolled spread of Covid-19, after the Copa America was moved from its original host countries of Argentina and Colombia.

Half of the national teams participating in the Copa America have been affected by Covid-19 so far.

"We'll try to do all we can so no one gets it, but sometimes it doesn't depend solely on ourselves. "

Of the positive cases confirmed so far at the Copa America, 42 were among players and members registered in national teams, 97 cases were detected among service providers hired for the event and one case was a CONMEBOL staff member.

Last week, the health ministry reported 37 positive cases among players and delegation members and 45 among service providers of the tournament.
