The Colombian from River had been in close contact with a carrier of the virus and is completing the isolation.
The news set off the alarm in the Mundo River. This Sunday the result of the swab was received from the Colombian Rafael Santos Borré, who was kept in isolation because he had been in close contact with a coronavirus carrier. The result was positive, which confirmed the first case in the Marcelo Gallardo campus after those already announced by Milton Helmet Y Ezekiel Centurion.
Borré had already missed the match against Rosario Central, which River won 2-1 this Saturday. But as a result of this situation, not only the next match for the Professional League Cup will be lost, but also the double knockout date that Colombia will play.
As the protocol mandates, the Colombian, whose partner is pregnant, remains isolated while waiting for his recovery.
The news was confirmed in the afternoon by River through his official Twitter account. According to the official part of the club, the Colombian striker is “asymptomatic” and “will remain isolated until his recovery.”
The coach of Colombia, Carlos Queiroz, who had not called up Borré for the start of the Qualifiers, was thinking of him as a possibility to replace the injured Radamel Falcao, who scored the miraculous goal for the tie in the last minute against Chile in Santiago.
But Borré will have to wait to have a new chance in his team. Now his priority will be the recovery to be able to return with everything both in his club and in what comes of the Playoffs.
