Juventus striker Paulo Dybala tests positive for Covid-19 for fourth time in six weeks

Published

(CNN)Juventus striker Paulo Dybala has tested positive for the coronavirus for the fourth time in six weeks, a source close to the player has told CNN.
The Argentine striker was one of the first Juventus players to contract Covid-19, along with Italian defender Daniele Rugani and French midfielder Blaise Matuidi, but has made a recovery.
“He is doing well now, he has no symptoms and is even training. Now he is waiting for the results of the latest two swabs,” the source said.
“Dybala has to respect the healthcare system and the time it takes. He is a soccer player and doesn’t get preferential treatment.”
It is unclear when each of Dybala’s tests took place.
A Juventus spokesperson told CNN: “Dybala is still positive and when he tests negative it will be communicated.”

Antibody response

Dybala first announced on Instagram on Saturday March 21 that he and his girlfriend Oriana Sabatini had tested positive after his first test.
On March 27, the 26-year-old spoke to Juventus’ official YouTube account about his experience of contracting the disease: “I developed strong symptoms, but today I already feel much better.
“Now I can move better, walking and trying to train. I could hardly breathe, I couldn’t do anything after five minutes. My muscles ached. Fortunately, Oriana and I are better now.”
The club announced earlier this month that both Rugani and Matuidi had made full recoveries after their swab tests came back with negative results.

Paulo Dybala celebrates after opening the scoring against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League.

Earlier this week the World Health Organization said there is “no evidence yet” that people who have tested positive for Covid-19 are immune from a second infection.
“Right now, there are no studies that evaluate the antibody response as it relates to immunity, so we can’t say that an antibody response means that someone is immune,” said Dr. Maria van Kerkhove, who is the technical lead for the coronavirus response with the WHO.
“Saying that there’s no evidence in this area, doesn’t mean that there’s no immunity, it just means these studies haven’t been done yet,” Van Kerkhove added.  

However, Italy’s Sports Minister Vincenzo Spadafora said he saw an “increasingly narrow path for the resumption of the Serie A.”
“If I were one of the presidents (of the clubs) I would focus on the next season,” Spadafora told private TV broadcaster La7.
While France canceled its 2019/2020 football season on Tuesday, England’s Premier League and Germany’s Bundesliga are exploring ways of trying to finish the current campaign, though Dybala’s case potential raises further questions for major European leagues to consider.
FIFA’s chief doctor said this week he remained skeptical about leagues restarting the 2019-20 season.
“My proposal is if it is possible, avoid playing competitive football in the coming weeks,” the chair of FIFA’s medical committee Michel d’Hooghe told BBC Sport. “Try to be prepared for the start of good competition next season.”

American superstar rapper, Nicki Minaj, shares the same sentiments as myriads of Wizkid fans and well-wishers worldwide, in that she concurs to the argument the trendsetting crossover record-breaking single from Wizkid’s 2020 released “Made In Lagos” album, Essence should be in the conversation for the coveted “Record of the Year” plaque at this year’s Grammy Awards.

Although “Essence” did not receive the much desired nomination in the category for “Record of the Year” at the 2022 Grammy Awards, it did get a nod for Best Global Music Performance, the first of its kind.

Irrespective of the snub, Nicki whilie on Joe Budden TV (YouTube) as a guest on the special episode tagged A Conversation With Nicki Minaj & Joe Budden agreed with the host (Joe Budden) when he said “We need people on the Grammy board that know that “Essence” was song of the year” with an exclamatory “Right! Right!” response. She even proffered, “We should have our own Grammy Board“, in support of many and the popular believe that Black Americans or black artistes in general are always stereotyped to a particular category at the award show, if indeed they made it to the top categories, they barely win; Nicki Minaj does not have a Grammy Award herself and that is still a shock to many, especially when considering her refined catalogue of music.
