Three football players test positive for coronavirus in Italy
Three players and a staffer at an Italian soccer club have tested positive for coronavirus, the organization announced Friday, New York Post informs.
The US Pianese, a Tuscany-based club, said one of its players began to develop a fever and headache Saturday evening while the team was in Alessandria for a championship game, according to a statement posted to Facebook. He was treated by the team’s doctor until he underwent COVID-19 testing Wednesday — and the results came back positive.
Two more players then tested positive for the widespread bug — one without any symptoms and another who was slightly feverish. Both were under quarantine in their homes, New York Post reports.
