“Without hesitation, once someone in a group tests positive for COVID-19, it all ends.” Sandra Zampa, Undersecretary for the Ministry of Health, told Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli.
“The quarantine is instant, and it stops the whole season. If you don’t stop, instead, you will be stopped by a virus. Loving football means taking care of the people working within it.”
“The main explanation we talk about the resumption of Series A is related to the economic effects.”
