Fnatic Derke Covid test result

Derke was previously diagnosed as Covid positive, which led him to be temporarily off the team. As Valorant LAN rules state that if a player is Covid positive, he or she will not take part in the LAN even until he or she gets back with a negative test result.

And in the case of Derke, he was to come back with a negative test before the 7th. Else otom was to play in his place.
