The side with Mangala, Garay, the delegate and a doctor has tested positive for Covid 19. They are all isolated from their families and asymptomatic. More positives are expected.
Valencia CF detected a focus of coronavirus in their squad that has already affected Ezequiel Garay , José Luis Gayà , Eliaquim Mangala . All three tested positive for the Covid 19 test that the staff underwent two days ago, and which also detected the presence of the virus in the organism of the delegate, Paco Camarasa, and the doctor Juan Aliaga.
The players are isolated at home, asymptomatic and waiting for more cases to be confirmed. The first to confirm that he has contracted the disease was Garay, who made it public on his social networks, as Mangala later did. But the message that has penetrated is that of José Luis Gayà.
The Valencian winger took the opportunity to ask that health not collapse in cases of positives. ” Let us not collapse our Health . Now, it is our elders who need it most and it is the serious cases that have to be attended to by our health heroes,” he requested, while thanking all the members of the health Spanish and the security forces. “They are the true heroes of this pandemic.”
The tests were repeated yesterday afternoon to several members of the squad, the coaching staff and the club’s employees who are in direct contact with the first squad. It is possible that the number of infections today reaches ten.
The first to feel discomfort was Dr. Aliaga, when he returned from the game against Alavés in Vitoria , the main contagion zone after Madrid, on Friday, March 6. Since then he has had no contact with the team.
Valencia’s rivals, both Alavés himself and Atalanta , have been put on alert. In fact, the Italians have quarantined the entire squad that traveled to Valencia.
