Coronavirus: Two of Three Juventus Players Recover from COVID-19

It is great news for Italian Serie A league leaders Juventus as two out of three of their players have recovered from the coronavirus which has troubled the world for some time now. French international Blaise Matuidi and Danielle Rugani have both made full recoveries from coronavirus.

Italian Danielle Rugani was the first to test positive to the virus in the Juventus camp because France midfielder Matuidi confirmed he had been diagnosed with the virus a week after Rugani tested positive. The both players were placed under self-isolation based on the recommendations from the medical personals.

Juventus said recently in a statement that both players had undergone swab tests which had come back clean, meaning they no longer have to self-isolate. A club statement read: “Rugani and Matuidi underwent, as per protocol, a double-check with diagnostic tests (swabs) for the coronavirus.

“The tests came back with negative results. The players have, therefore, recovered and are no longer subjected to the home isolation regime.” Rugani and Matuidi were two of three Juve players to contract coronavirus, with Argentine forward Paulo Dybala also testing positive. It was announced last week that sport in Italy will remain suspended after its prime minister extended the nationwide lockdown to May 3.

On Wednesday, the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) recommended that the players and staff at Serie A clubs should be tested for coronavirus and then isolated in training camps when they begin preparing for the season to restart. They concluded that they will run test players and then resume training and then resume the league afterwards.
