Italy has been one of the most affected places in the world due to the Coronavirus pandemic. There are 53,578 confirmed COVID-19 cases with 4,825 people dead. Serie A has been suspended due to this outbreak.
Juventus player Daniel Rugani had tested positive at the very beginning of this pandemic and since then all the players had been instructed to keep themselves isolated in their homes.
Paulo Dybala is the third player after Rugani and Matuidi to be tested positive. His girlfriend Oriana Sabatini, the niece of 1990 US Open champion Gabriela Sabatini, who is an Argentine singer, actress and model has also tested positive of the virus.
