What is bio-bubble?
In simple language, it is an environment in which the person living is completely cut off from the outside world. That is, the players participating in the IPL, the support staff, the match official, even the hotel staff and the medical team that conducts the corona test are not allowed to go outside the purview. The person living within its scope cannot come in contact with anyone from outside world.
