The President of Moreirense had another positive test for the new coronavirus that causes Covid-19 four months after the initial infection. This Saturday, Lusa confirmed the source of the 1st League Football Club.
The 69-year-old Vítor Magalhães knew the result of a screening battery held on Sunday and went into prophylactic isolation on the eve of the home game of the “Canons” with Belenenses SAD (2-2) in the game at the end of the 21st trip.
The manager, who is asymptomatic, was already infected in early November 2020 when a Covid-19 outbreak in Moreirense caused 30 cases, which resulted in the suspension of training for a week and a half and the postponement of the game with Paços de Ferreira.
That group also included midfielder Gonçalo Franco, who also tested positive for the new coronavirus on February 3 and returned to training 12 days later.
Moreirense, eighth, with 26 points, travels on Sunday at 5:30 p.m. in Estádio dos Barreiros in Funchal to Marítimo, 17th and penultimate, with 18 points Luís Godinho from the Évora club.
According to a report by the French agency AFP, the Covid-19 pandemic caused at least 2,570,291 deaths worldwide, attributable to more than 115.5 million cases of infection.
In Portugal, 16,486 people died from the 808,405 confirmed cases of infection, according to the latest bulletin from the Directorate-General for Health.
