Did a Football Match Caused Corona’s Outbreak in Italy?

Doctors believed that the reason behind the spread of the Coronavirus in Italy so quickly and unprecedentedly was a football match that was held last February in the European Champions League.

The Italian newspaper “Corriere Dello Sport” revealed, on Tuesday, that the match between the Italian team Atlanta and Spanish club Valencia in the first leg of the sixteenth round in the Champions League, is the reason behind the spread of Coronavirus in Italy.

“The match between Atlanta and Valencia in San Siro was a biological bomb, especially since it was attended by more than 40,000 people from the city of Bergamo,” the newspaper quoted doctor Fabiano di Marco, director of lung disease at Papa Giovanni Hospital in Italy.

He stressed that “the movement of these fans by buses, cars, and trains led to the rapid spread of the epidemic as witnessed by the country today.”

The match was held at the San Siro stadium in Milan on February 19, a few days before Italy discovered the “disaster” of the spread of the Coronavirus.

Radio “Cadena Ser” Italy stated that this match caused the death of about 500 people due to infection with Coronavirus, and also caused more than a third of Valencia’s players and a large number of the fans.

The match between Atlanta and its guest Valencia ended with a huge victory for the hosts 4-1, before they renewed their victory over Valencia with the return match in Spain 4-3, and they deservedly defeated the eligibility of the transit ticket for the quarter-finals of the “Champions”.
