ROME – Chile quarantines Vidal and Sanchez. Players from Barcelona and Inter, returning home for the World Cup qualifying matches, will have to remain isolated due to the coronavirus emergency.
This was announced by Health Minister Jaime Manalich ahead of the match that the Chilean national team will play against Uruguay (on March 26) and, five days later, against Colombia.
"We don't make any distinction about the profession of people – the words of the Minister of Health because nobody is immune from this virus". The players will be able to face the period of isolation in their homes or collectively in the national team's facilities. Bologna midfielder Gary Medel is among the other players from Chile who could be quarantined on their return home.
Coronavirus in the world.
In the United States, over a thousand coronavirus cases have been confirmed, with new infections in Florida and Michigan.
An entire Sicilian family, father, mother and three children under the age of ten, are stuck in Morocco because Ryanair canceled all flights to Italy yesterday. “We don't know what to do because the Italian Embassy doesn't answer us and neither does the consul – says Francesco Catalfo – now we are returning to the airport. But with three small children it's all much more complicated. Ryanair canceled the Marrakech-Catania flight yesterday and gives us no alternative solution. We were considering going to Germany, but traveling half of Europe with the coronavirus and three young children is risky. "
