Despite the strict measures adopted by the Club after playing a match on February 19, 2020 UEFA Champions League in Milan, confirmed a high risk area by the Italian authorities days later, distancing the staff from the work environment and the general public, the latest results show that the inherent exposure to matches has caused around 35% of positive cases, “reads the statement issued about 21:45 on Monday.
