SETBACK FOR SERIE A AS 14 MEMBERS OF GENOA CLUB TEST POSITIVE FOR CORONAVIRUS

The Italian Serie A could be temporarily suspended as Genoa club team members and staff tested positive for coronavirus.

According to a statement released by the club “After today’s tests, the number of COVID-19 positive employees has risen to 14 team members and staff.”

The statement further added that “The club has activated all the procedures according to the protocol and informed the authorities. The club will provide updates as the situation evolves.”

The team members and staff numbering 14 were confirmed on Monday after a humiliating 6-0 defeat to Napoli.

The club didn’t publish names of the actual members involved but has said that it will seek to postpone the next match.

This situation also means players and members of staff of Napoli have to self isolate and test themselves as they made contacts during the match with Genoa.

This poses as a setback for the Italian league as it may have to suspend matches or take very proactive measures in the coming days.
