Ghana International and Inter Milan wing-back, Kwadwo Asamoah in an interview with Ghanaian radio station Peace FM have shed light on the current happenings in Italy.
The player currently based in Milan has described the situation as ‘worrying’ and ‘scary’ after the country overtook China as the hardest hit by the coronavirus pandemic.
“The condition in Italy now has worsened and I will say it’s not good. I am doing well but the conditions here are very bad”
“For now we can’t go anywhere. All training programs have been cancelled. Everything has been shut down here in Milan, ” Asamoah told Peace FM.
He added, “It hasn’t been easy. We didn’t take this thing seriously in the beginning. People were still going about their daily activities that is why the virus has really spread that fast.”
The virus which has infected over 30,000 people in the country with close to 5000 deaths has seen over a dozen Serie A players infected.
The player insisted that no Inter Milan player has been infected with the virus despite being the last team to play Juventus before the break.
“So far no Inter Milan player has contracted the disease. It’s worrying to know some players have contracted the virus especially the players from Juventus because they were the last team we played against before the break”.
Meanwhile, Juventus remain among the heavily hit teams in Italy after trio Daniele Rugani, Paulo Dybala and Blaise Matuidi tested positive for the virus also known as COVID-19.
