Arsenal have gone public with a statement after Olympiacos’ owner revealing that he has tested positive with Coronavirus.
Arsenal have assured people that no one at the club has shown any symptoms of Covid-19, but that they are aware of the situation and monitoring it.
Evangelos Marinakis was at Emirates Stadium less than two weeks ago when the Greek club beat the Gunners in the Europa League and, reportedly, did have contact with numerous members of Arsenal’s staff throughout the evening.
According to www.goal.com an Arsenal spokesperson said:
“Our home match with Olympiacos in the Europa League was played on Thursday 27th February and none of our staff who came into contact with him on that matchday have reported any symptoms since,”
“We continue to follow strict protocols with regard to coronavirus. We’re following the Government health guidelines and have additional procedures in place to protect our players and staff.
“This has included regular deep cleaning of areas used by players at Emirates Stadium and our training centre.”
The situation is being monitored worldwide and threatening the completion of seasons across the world. While no one is sure what this will mean for the Premier League, it is important that measures are taken to protect players, coaches, staff, and the general public. We will continue to monitor this and report as more comes out.
For all of you out there – stay safe, stay healthy. We wish you well.
