Italian giant, Juventus have placed the entire Under-23 players and their manager on quarantine test.
The entire team were placed under the test after three players from Serie C side
Pianese, who were their last opponent alongside their manager tested positive to
the deadly disease.
The Old Lady’s third-tier side played Pianese in their last encounter in which
they narrowly cruised to a victory with a lone goal.
A statement released by the club mandated their players to remain in their respective homes till March 8.
And as it stands, the Italian side has put all their Under-23 players in quarantine and stopped all training pronto, pending the time there will be clear updates on the fast-spreading virus.
Although no player has shown symptoms, the club has mandated all players to remain in their homes until March 8.
A couple of Serie A fixtures were cancelled to prevent further spread of the disease including Juventus vs Inter Milan and a host of other fixtures.
Since its outbreak in China, coronavirus has been grossly responsible for the death
of thousands across Asia, and Italy is the only country in Europe with the highest
number of reported cases (1,049) with over twenty-nine dead.
