Napoli’s Italy internationals test negative for COVID

Napoli announce the swab tests underwent by Piotr Zielinski and the three Italy internationals came back negative.

Alex Meret, Lorenzo Insigne and Giovanni Di Lorenzo underwent new swab tests today.

A COVID outbreak hit both Poland and Italy national teams earlier last week with the FIGC, who announced for staff members had caught the virus.

The trouble is, six Italy players had tested positive for COVID since and Torino’s Salvatore Sirigu could be the sixth one.

There was an outbreak of Coronavirus inside the Poland camp, hitting among others Bologna goalkeeper Lukasz Skorupski.

Considering Zielinski was Skorupski’s roommate at the training camp, this raised concerns that the Napoli midfielder could become infected.

Zielinski tested first positive and then negative upon his return from international duty.

All the players underwent further examinations in the last few hours, and the swab tests came back negative.

Napoli travel to Turin to face Juventus on Wednesday in the rescheduled fixture from matchday 3.
