Fiorentina trio free of coronavirus

Fiorentina have announced that players Patrick Cutrone, German Pezzella and Dusan Vlahovic “are no longer positive for COVID-19.”

The three players were among several figures at the club to test positive for the coronavirus, including members of staff and their chief medic.

“ACF Fiorentina is delighted to announce that tests have revealed that Patrick Cutrone, German Pezzella and Dusan Vlahovic are no longer positive for COVID-19,” read a statement.

“We would like to take this opportunity to thank the doctors, nurses and hospitals that are continuing to care for all those who require medical attention at this difficult time for Italy and indeed the whole world.

“Fiorentina is working with the Careggi and Santa Maria Nuova ONLUS foundations through its Forza e Cuore campaign, which has so far raised in excess of €760,000. The money has been used to purchase key materials and equipment for use in the fight against the pandemic.”

There were 13 official cases of coronavirus among Serie A players at Juventus, Fiorentina, Sampdoria and Hellas Verona, but some clubs were reticent to confirm specific numbers.
