The coronavirus hits hard again in Serie A. Genoa reported tonight that 14 people between the coaching staff and players tested positive for Covid-19. Two of them are Mattia Perin and Lasse Schone: The goalkeeper was known on Saturday and his contagion postponed the match with Napoli for three hours, which finally took place yesterday at six in the afternoon (with a 6-0 win for the Southerners). The ‘rossoblú’ club could travel only on Sunday morning, once the results of the last round of tests were known, which only gave one positive, that of the former Ajax.
Today, however, the bad news arrived that makes the whole of Liguria the most serious outbreak of Calcium and it seems already very difficult for the team to play its game against Torino next Saturday. Naples, yesterday’s rival, also worries: the ‘partenopei’ are undergoing new tests at this time. On Sunday, Gattuso’s team should visit Juventus in Turin.
“The club has activated all the procedures provided for by the current protocol and has informed the relevant authorities about the procedures. The club will provide the next updates dictated by the evolution,” added Genoa in its statement.
