Juventus: Dybala not cured yet

Juventus released a statement confirming Daniele Rugani and Blaise Matuidi now test negative for COVID-19, but Paulo Dybala is not given the all-clear.

Players drove into the training ground today at Continassa to begin tests and prepare work after almost two months of the lockdown.

A statement was released detailing the various actions the club is taking to abide by Government guidelines, including the intensive cleaning of all work surfaces, including the team bus.

Tellingly, this noted that Rugani, Matuidi and Dybala were all under self-isolation after testing positive for COVID-19.

“Rugani and Matuidi performed, as protocol, the double diagnostic test (swabs) for coronavirus-Covid-19. The tests resulted negative. The players were therefore declared cured on April 15 and are no longer under self-isolation.”

There have been reports in Argentina that Dybala is still positive for COVID-19, even though he no longer has symptoms.

His girlfriend Oriana said that they were simply waiting for the final test results.

Players will be regularly subjected to both swabs and blood tests to check for COVID-19 or any potential side-effects.
