According to Agence France-Presse citing Argentine media reports, former Argentine football superstar Diego Maradona was admitted to the hospital on the 2nd for examination and treatment.
According to multiple media reports, Maradona’s hospitalization has nothing to do with new coronary pneumonia. According to reports, Maradona has a history of drug and alcohol abuse and is in poor health.
Therefore, once he is infected with the coronavirus, he is at high risk of complications. Maradona had had two heart attacks before and had contracted hepatitis.
One of Maradona’s bodyguards had some symptoms of coronavirus before, and Maradona had conducted preventive self-isolation for a period of time. The bodyguard’s coronavirus test result was eventually negative. Last week Maradona celebrated his 60th birthday.
He is currently being treated in a hospital in La Plata, south of Buenos Aires.
