Cristiano Ronaldo In Quarantine After Teammate Tests Positive for Coronavirus

Cristiano Ronaldo is currently being quarantined in Portgual after Daniele Rugani, his teammate from the soccer team Juventus, tested positive for the Coronavirus.

The 35-year-old soccer star, who happens to be the most followed person on Instagram, played in a game with Rugani this past Sunday and then flew back to Portugal to see his mother who recently suffered a stroke.

Ronaldo will no longer be flying back to Italy to be with his team and he’ll remain in isolation for the time being. Everyone in contact with Rugani is also in quarantine right now, according to Daily Mail.

While Juventus is scheduled to play in the Champions League match against Lyon next week, it’s expected that the game is going to be postponed.

Daniele, 25, wrote on Twitter: “You will have read the news and that’s why I want to reassure all those who are worrying about me, I’m fine. I urge everyone to respect the rules, because this virus makes no distinctions! Let’s do it for ourselves, for our loved ones and for those around us.”

The team said in a statement, “The footballer Daniele Rugani has tested positive for Coronavirus-COVID-19 and is currently asymptomatic. Juventus Football Club is currently activating all the isolation procedures required by law, including the census of those who have had contact with him.”

There are over 10,000 known cases of Coronavirus in Italy right now and more than 600 people have died.
