A further 36 positive tests were reported by the 20 English Premier League clubs between 4 January and 10 January.
A total of 27 of the tests came between January 4 and 7 January, with 10 more coming between Friday and Sunday, the Premier League said in a statement.
The 36 positive tests represent a slight reduction on the record number of 40 tests in the previous week.
A total of 2,593 tests were conducted across the 20 clubs.
The news comes on the day Tottenham’s Premier League match at Aston Villa was postponed because of coronavirus cases in the Villa camp, and after Scottish football below the Championship was suspended for three weeks from midnight because of the rising number of cases.
There has been a sharp surge in cases during the past two weeks. Last week’s total of 40 was more than double the number of the previous week, while the total of 76 since 28 December is higher than the total positive cases from the previous six rounds combined.
