Un a friendly match between Croatian and Turkish football in the early morning of November 12th, Beijing time, the captain of the Croatian team, Domagoj Vida, was actually in the game. Half of the time, he was suddenly told that his new coronavirus test result “may be positive.”
Although he was replaced immediately, the matter still caused considerable concern and concern .
According to the British “Daily Mail” report, although Vinda’s last test for the Coronavirus before the match was negative, his latest test results showed that he was “on the morning of the match with the Turkish team.” It may be positive”.
As a result, after the game was halfway through—that is, after Vinda had had a lot of contact with his teammates and Turkish players—the Croatian team had to replace him urgently.
What made the players on both sides even more depressed was that further test results confirmed that Vinda was indeed infected with Coronavirus. This also caused many netizens concerned about this matter to call for the suspension of the game.
Some media also found that during the intermission of the game, Vinda had had very close contact with a Turkish player and hugged each other.
However, although Vinda himself will self-isolate in Istanbul, the Turkish capital, his teammates will still go to Stockholm, Sweden to prepare for the next game with the Swedish national team.
It is not yet clear whether Vinda’s infection will cause infection of others in this 3-3 game between Croatia and Turkey.
In addition, given that Sweden once adopted “herd immunity” measures to deal with the Coronavirus, even if the country has now abandoned this failed pandemic prevention strategy, Croatian players may have to take further precautions there
