Juventus star Paulo Dybala tested positive for COVID-19 for the fourth time in six weeks, according to the Spanish program El Chiringuito. It came after the virus was both contracted by Daniele Rugani and Blaise Matuidi.According to El Chiringuito,
It remains to be seen if Dybala’s test was actually positive, and where Juventus, if it was, would go from here. Because Juve is supposed to be back to work from May 4th to May 18th, which also puts a spanner in La Joya’s hopes of playing. Dybala wouldn’t be alone, as Atalanta Marco Sportiello tested positive, then negative, then positive again.
On March 21, he confirmed via Instagram that he and his girlfriend Oriana Sabatini had both tested positive for coronavirus: “I developed strong symptoms, but today I already feel much better,” he told his club’s
official YouTube account on March 27. “Now I can move better, walking and trying to train. I could hardly breathe, I couldn’t do anything after five minutes. My muscles ached. Fortunately, Oriana and I are better now.”
However, this reassurance to his fans has proven to be premature. Since Dybala has undergone four tests in the last six weeks, and the most recent one has been successful, he has clearly been unable to shake off the disease. He will likely need more intensive care.
