There have been a lot of cases of the coronavirus in the Northern parts of Italy this week, with the total amount of infected Italians currently being 400. This is the first time a footballer has been infected with the virus. It’s not the first time the virus had an impact in the football world however. A journalist from Valencia has contacted the virus after the Champions League game against Atalanta and this weekend’s Juventus – Inter Milan will be played in an empty stadium.
