Ghanaian and Inter Milan footballer Kwadwo Asamoah has described the coronavirus horrors he has closely witnessed in Italy.
As widely reported worldwide, Italy has equalled China in the high number of Covid-19 fatalities. “The condition in Italy now has worsened and I will say it’s not good," Asamoah told Peace FM.
"I am doing well but the conditions here are very bad.
“For now we can’t go anywhere. All training programs have been cancelled. Everything has been shut down here in Milan.
The 31-year-old further confirmed that Italy’s downfall had been the costly attitude of ignoring the warning guidelines that came out before the deadly chaos ensued.
“It hasn’t been easy. We didn’t take this thing seriously in the beginning. People were still going about their daily activities that is why the virus has really spread that fast."
While a handful of Italian football names got infected, namely Daniele Rugani, Blaise Matuidi and Paulo Dybala, Asamoah was pleased to confirm that none of his teammates have fallen victim.
"So far no Inter Milan player has contracted the disease," Asamoah added.
"It’s worrying to know some players have contracted the virus especially the players from Juventus because they were the last team we played against before the break.
“Even when you have a normal cough you get scared and think you have the virus,” concluded the Accra-born player.
