A new case of Covid-19 was reported on the River Plate campus this Saturday: it is the youth Augusto Aguirre, who is already isolated.
After the contagion of Enzo Pérez, who became known last Friday on the eve of the match for the first leg of the CONMEBOL Libertadores quarterfinals against Nacional, the defender of the Reserve joins, to whom Marcelo Gallardo has already participated in some training in the First and took him to the bench in some Diego Armando Maradona Cup games.
Two professional football collaborators, Facundo Greco and Fabián Robledo, had also tested positive together with Enzo Pérez, who were also isolated and were asymptomatic.
And in the Reserve it is the second contagion, after that of Esteban Fernández, who was separated as his two close contacts Tomás Lecanda and Santiago Simón, who usually travel with him to training.
Despite the fact that another case of Covid-19 is never positive, it is surely a relief for Marcelo Gallardo that no more infections have appeared in the professional staff. Against Argentinos, on Sunday for the Championship Zone, the millionaire DT will use an alternative team to reserve everything for the rematch with Nacional.
ℹ [Parte médico] In the PCR tests carried out yesterday, the player Augusto Aguirre tested positive for COVID 19 and will remain isolated until his recovery.
