Coronavirus: Lampard provides Callum Hudson-Odoi update as Chelsea reopen training ground

Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi has made great progress in his recovery journey according to manager Frank Lampard.

The winger tested positive for Coronavirus last week, forcing the entire Chelsea team to be sent into self-quarantine.

The club's training ground is back in operation, even though personnel who had close contact with the 19-year-old continue to self-isolate in line with health guidelines.

"I’m happy to say that in Callum’s case, he has made great progress and almost feels his usual self, which is obviously the news we all want to hear," said the head coach.

"I am of course aware that not everyone can or will recover from this virus, so I urge all of the football and sporting community to continue to act responsibly and look out for the health of others," he added.

The Englishman also had some advice to football fans and the world at large, even as the outbreak continues eating into other countries.

"I want to make it clear that I am no medical expert when it comes to challenging times such as these but please do take the time to call older relatives and vulnerable people who might be alone, or offer to drop round shopping if they can’t get out. Let’s make sure we all take care of each other.

"Social distancing can leave us feeling isolated, however, we can continue to support each other even if that means doing it remotely," he added.

The virus has thrown football into total chaos, with the EURO 2020 already postponed to 2021.

Premier League football is set to return on April 4th, same as the Serie A.
