The Colombian forward was separated from the squad and the corresponding studies will be carried out once the reasonable time has elapsed.
This Friday, the River world woke up with bad news. Is that Colombian striker Rafael Santos Borré was separated from the squad after having had contact with a person who tested positive for coronavirus, as reported by the medical report issued by the Núñez institution.
“The player Rafael Borré has been isolated in a preventive manner because he was in contact with a person who later tested positive for COVID 19. Once the reasonable period of time has elapsed, the corresponding studies will be carried out,” the club reported through its official Twitter account.
This Thursday, all soccer players, coaching staff and club staff underwent mandatory testing prior to each competition date as established by the health protocol of the Professional Club League. Everyone, including Borré, tested negative.
In River, they do not know precisely, however, when the scorer was with the person who was infected. Hence the need to wait to do another PCR beyond having passed the control on Thursday. Therefore, as he was able to find out Clarion Through sources at the institution, they will swab it again in the next three or four days.
The same thing happened a week ago with Marcelo Gallardo, who was isolated preventively after having been with a person who had tested positive for Covid-19. Although the Doll did not present any symptoms, he respected the protocols and took the corresponding tests.
Two days later, the PCR performed on the 44-year-old coach yielded a negative result and brought everyone peace of mind. In this way, he was able to be present on the bench during the 3-1 loss to Banfield at the Independiente stadium, in what was his 300th game as the team’s technical director.
Who did not have the same luck was Milton Casco, who tested positive for coronavirus in early September. The left back had notified the coaching staff that many members of his family and his inner circle had been infected with Covid-19, so he would carry out the corresponding studies.
In this way, the former Newell’s missed the first matches of the group stage of the Copa Libertadores, after the restart of the competition after the pandemic. He was only able to return to the courts on September 30, when River defeated San Pablo 2-1 at home at the Avellaneda stadium.
