Convid19 – Four Sampdoria players in Italy test positive for Coronavirus

Four Sampdoria players in Italy, including one who had previously recovered, have tested positive for Coronavirus.

On March, five Sampdoria players, Manolo Gabbiadini, Morten Thorsby, Albin Ekdal, Omar Colley and Antonino La Gumina as well as team doctor Amedeo Baldari had tested positive for virus.

‘Currently asymptomatic, they have been quarantined and will be constantly monitored according to the protocol’.

The government had given assurance on Thursday that it was still examining the medical guidelines of the Italian football federation before considering the resumption of the season and has permitted the team to resume training with players training individually to maintain social distancing protocols.

According to Eurosport, full team practices are due to begin on May 18, but only if the medical protocol is approved.
