Genoa announce that 14 of their first-team players and staff have tested positive for COVID-19 after their Serie A match vs. Napoli on Sunday
According to Sportitalia, the latest round of swabs following Sunday’s 6-0 defeat to Napoli found the virus had spread throughout the matchday group.
It was confirmed with a statement from Genoa, who acknowledged that there are now 14 members of the matchday group – which includes members of staff – who tested positive.
Sportitalia and the Gazzetta dello Sport claim the figure is divided into eight players who tested positive – so that could well be 10 in total including Perin and Schone.
“Genoa CFC announce that after today’s tests, the number of COVID-19 positive employees has risen to 14 between team members and staff.
“The club has activated all the procedures as per the protocol and informed the authorities. The club will give updates as the situation evolves.”
So Genoa’s game against Torino this weekend is in serious doubt.
