It was decided by the personal doctor of the Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata coach. Will the debut in the League Cup be lost?
At the time of his 60th birthday, Diego Armando Maradona learned this Tuesday that one of his custodians has symptoms similar to those of a patient with coronavirus and will have to spend the next few hours isolated in his home on the outskirts of La Plata.
The isolation is preventive and on the recommendation of his doctor, Leopoldo Luque, who will also analyze in the next ones if it is necessary for the DT of Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata to undergo a swab.
It depends, of course, on the result of the studies to which the custodian will undergo, who today woke up with a cough and warned that he would not go to work until the test could be performed. The man, a close contact with Maradona, was last Sunday at Diez’s house.
As with Marcelo Gallardo, who this Tuesday was also isolated on a preventive basis – although in this case the close contact was positive, the coach feels well and has not presented any compatible symptoms of COVID-19 so far.
Considered a risk patient, Maradona tried to keep all the precautions to avoid catching coronavirus in recent times. In fact, he had already been isolated a few weeks ago on a preventive basis and did not participate in the Wolf’s training when it was learned that forward Nicolás Contín had tested positive.
Aware of Contín’s situation, hours after the friendly against San Lorenzo at the Nuevo Gasómetro, Maradona even underwent a preventive swab.
“Hi everyone. I wanted to tell you that thank God my son Diego Fernando, my daughter Jana, Verónica and I DO NOT have coronavirus. I send you a big kiss and a BIG THANK YOU to all who were concerned about our health. And a lot of strength for all those who are fighting it !!! ”, Maradona had posted on his social networks once he learned of the negative result of the PCR test.
