It’s psychological, I Was Scared - Paulo Dybala
March 21, turned out to not be just another regular day for the Juventus and Argentina superstar, as he and his girlfriend tested positive for the Coronavirus.
But all his well now as both of them have recovered from the deadly virus. According to the latest interview posted on Juventus’s official twitter account, Dybala said - “I feel good, much better in fact, after having some strong symptoms for a couple of days”.
Italy has been the worst-hit country when it comes to infections which eventually results in deaths.
Dybala was not the only Juventus player to be infected with the virus. Daniele Rugani and Blaise Matuidi have also tested positive and are now in self-isolation.
During an interview with the Argentina Football Association, he said – “I had a bad cough, I felt tired and when I slept I felt cold. We had headaches, but it was advised not to take anything, and the club gave us vitamins and over time we felt better”.
He urged that all people take the current situation seriously. As it is nothing to be joked with. Countries such as Italy, have been worst hit and people are now realizing the impact.
But Italy has not been the only affected country. The virus clawed its way to England, and several EPL managers and players were infected. That list also included the Ex-Liverpool and Aston Villa’s current goalkeeper Pepe Reina. Reina who is currently on loan to Aston Villa from AC Milan said – “For 25 Minutes I ran out of Oxygen”.
The legendary Liverpool goalkeeper recovered from the virus last week, and looking back at his ordeal there might be a lesson for everyone here. He said that “He hadn’t been out for 18 days”. But the real scare came when he started experiencing the first symptoms of the virus. Fever, dry cough and a headache soon after which he self-isolated.
Reina said - “The first 6-8 days, I spent locked in a room”
The surprising fact is that Reina never took the test. He spoke to the doctor after realizing the symptoms and the doctor said that the symptoms are of the virus and that was enough for Reina to isolate himself.
The Spanish goalkeeper said that – “obviously there is no official confirmation, as I did not take the test, but I know it was Covid-19. I felt like a lorry or a train had run me over. I could not breathe, I had a fever. It was two to three really difficult days”
