The Independent Athletic Club reported this Tuesday morning that Uruguayan soccer player Federico Martínez tested positive for COVID-19.
The 24-year-old winger had been feverish on Monday, so the Avellaneda institution decided to swab him and isolate him immediately.
The results confirmed the presence of coronavirus in Martínez, who was doing the preseason at the club he arrived at in early October 2020 from Rosario Central.

Martínez must carry out the corresponding quarantine pending negative COVID-19 results that enable him to return to training with the rest of the squad and under the orders of coach Julio César Falcioni.
