Following the news about Hollywood actor Tom Hanks and his wife diagnosed with Corona virus, footballer Daniele Rugani has also tested positive for Corona virus.
The Serie A side activated “all the isolation procedures required by law”, including for those who have come into contact with the 25 year old Italian player.
All sport in Italy is suspended until 3 April, with the country in lockdown because of the coronavirus outbreak.
Juventus defender, on his twitter account assures his fans not to worry about him and that he’s fine.
Avrete letto la notizia e per questo ci tengo a tranquillizzare tutti coloro che si stanno preoccupando per me, sto bene.
Invito tutti a rispettare le regole, perché questo virus non fa distinzioni! Facciamolo per noi stessi, per i nostri cari e per chi ci circonda.#grazie pic.twitter.com/1QqewIKjie

It is understood the entire Juventus squad will spend two weeks in quarantine.
Rugani has made only seven appearances for Juventus this season and was an unused substitute in his side’s last match – a 2-0 win over Inter Milan held behind closed doors on Sunday.
Meanwhile, Rugani’s Welsh clubmate Aaron Ramsey is likely to miss his country’s friendlies this month as a result of the nationwide lockdown in Italy.
Rugani has won four Serie A titles with Juve and played for Italy seven times, last featuring for the national team in 2018.
