Valencia’s trip to Milan to play Atalanta in the first leg of the Champions League round of 16 became a nightmare. And not because the Spanish team lost 4-1, but because when going to an area of maximum risk for the coronavirus, when the crisis has not yet fully erupted in Spain and almost not in Italy, a third of the team became infected with COVID -19. Garay, Gayá and Mangala were the first footballers to test positive, along with delegate Camarasa and member of the medical staff Juan Aliaga. But the list has not ended there, as confirmed by the club itself in a statement. Of course, at least the cases do not seem serious. “Valencia CF reports new positive cases of the COVID-19 coronavirus in technicians and first-team players. All are asymptomatic and are at home with medical monitoring and isolation measures, carrying out their scheduled work plan normally. Despite the strict measures adopted by the Club after contesting on February 19, 2020 a UEFA Champions League match in Milan, confirmed high-risk area by Italian authorities days later, distancing the workforce from the work environment and the general public, the latest results show that the inherent exposure to the parties has caused around 35% of positive cases ”.
