Serie A Players That Infected With Covid-19

The world of sports is waiting to return to normal in the coming months, but it does not seem an easy task. One of the significant controversies that have been unleashed is whether or not to return to football competitions. Health control is going to be essential, but it is clear that with a single footballer carrying the virus without knowledge, the risk of contagion would be extremely high.

In recent months, the coronavirus has become the main evil for international soccer. Deferred calendars, closed-door games, footballers in preventive isolation, compromised finances in teams, and legal conflicts are some of the consequences of the coronavirus pandemic in the world of soccer. Several clubs across the globe reported cases; most are stable.

However, according to the Italian newspaper 'Corriere della Sera', the Federation of Sports Doctors warns of the dangers of the return of football. One of them is that the ball could be a source of coronavirus infections. They advise that the ball can be a probable source of infection. So, the objective is that if you play again at a professional level, you should always do it with gloves, since the ball can be a transmitter of the Covid-19. A clear example was Serie A, which after suspending the classic Italian Juventus - Inter in the first instance, the following week, on March 8, decided to play it. What happened? That Daniele Rugani, an Italian soccer player who plays for Juventus, tested positive for Covid-19. Then, they had to put both teams in preventive quarantine.

Also, AC Milan President Paolo Scaroni told that there are players on the "recovery process" after being infected by Covid-19. At the same time, Italian clubs are driving individual training in view of a possible return of Serie A to the stadiums. Consideration should be taken to the physical condition of the players who recovered from the COVID-19. How could this affect their current performance? What could be the possible future of their careers?

According to reports, those who had the COVID-19 are more tired than the rest when doing the exercises. They will need time to regain their physical tone and be 100 percent. Let's hope they can return to their best level soon.
