“Palmeiras family, unfortunately in a game as important as tomorrow’s I will not be able to be present. I’ll be out but cheering a lot for my teammates on the field, he said in his statement.
Unfortunately, I again tested positive for covid-19. On 04/01, we performed the control tests of the club, as we do every week, and mine came back positive. I had contracted this virus before, I am totally asymptomatic, I even have my IgG reagent, but the rules of the club are clear.
I was instructed to stay in a quarantined house under the supervision of the DM, but yesterday I went to the supermarket in the mall to take my mother who does not know how to drive, without leaving my car and wearing a mask, but I ended up getting involved in an accident in which a bicycle hit the car at the exit of the parking lot.”
