Juventus has issued a statement stating that Paulo Dybal was not given an all-clear examination when tested again for coronavirus.
Daniele Rugani and Blaise Matuidi have now passed a negative examination for COVID-19, but Juventus reports Dybala is still not in the clear. Tellingly, this implies that Rugani, Matuidi and Dybala were all under self-isolation after successful testing of 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,” Juventus announced.
There have been indications in Argentina that Dybala is still positive for COVID-19, even though it no longer has symptoms. His girlfriend Oriana said they were just waiting for the final test results.
Players went to the Continassa training ground today to continue testing and prepare for work after almost two months of lockdown. They must undergo routine swabs and blood tests to screen for COVID-19 or any possible side-effects.
A statement was issued outlining the other numerous steps the club is taking to comply with the government requirements, including a thorough cleaning of all work surfaces, including the team bus.
