Only the names of Garay, Mangala and Gayà have been released for the time being, in addition to the delegate Camarasa and Dr. Aliaga.

Valencia in its statement did stress that the contagion is due to the “inherent exposure of the parties” and has taken advantage of their case to send a message of awareness to society of the “high contagiousness of the virus”. Valencia, for more preventive measures it took, was in fact a pioneering club in Spain in terms of protocol, it has been splashed by a massive contagion in its dressing room. Valencia in recent weeks has had to travel at the whim of the calendar to two of the hotbeds of contagion in Italy and Spain. The team played the February 19 in Milan, when the health alarms had not yet gone off in the Lombardy region (they did two days later), and the March 6 traveled to Vitoria to face Alavés (club that last Saturday published two cases in members of its coaching staff). In between, Valencia received Real Betis at Mestalla. Valencia have been isolating their players since February 24. That day he began to shut down his Sports City, and took measures so that its footballers kept as little contact as possible with people outside the first team. He suspended press conferences, interviews, traveled to Vitoria during the day to spend as little time as possible in the hotel and in the city … and It was the first team to have to play in Mestalla behind closed doors due to the coronavirus in the Champions League, in the second leg against Atalanta de Bergamo.last_img
