In Genoa, the first of 22 coronavirus cases was goalkeeper Mattia Perin.
Perin determined to go known and readily speak on what he holds about the virus that has been destroying the world for almost a year.
“It all started seven days before the Napoli-Genoa match, on September 21. I went to Turin with my wife and son. It was Monday. Contrary to what was said, there is no evidence that I was infected that day. I did not infect Italian football. I did the tests on Wednesday, as usual. The result came on Thursday, everything was fine, but I had a fever at night,” Perrin said in an interview for La Repubblica, adding:
“We can get this disease in a taxi or by pressing a button in the elevator. Everyone in my family was negative. Cristiano Ronaldo got the virus, Trump also and Covid-19 was then called deadly, so people need to take the situation more seriously. I still believe that Covid-19 was created in a laboratory and did not originate from animals.”
