Kylian Mbappe of Paris Saint Germain (PSG) was subjected to COVID-19 test on Tuesday, and as the test came back today, he is negative. This was an effort by the club to ensure he is not COVID-19 positive after missing two days (Monday and Tuesday) training with a throat infection and fever.
According to the reports of French news outlet, L’Équipe, the results of the test should be out on Wednesday, but initial testing suggests that his swabs will come back negative for coronavirus. This supports the PSG medical department’s initial hypothesis, that Mbappé has a throat infection.
Officials of leagues in Spain and France, even Germany had announced that football matches in the top two divisions in Spain and France will be played behind closed doors for at least the next two weeks. The Italian Government had earlier announced the suspension of top-flight games until April 3 due to the coronavirus epidemic.
