THE Corinthians received on Tuesday, 2, several positive tests of Covid-19 in the round of exams done before the classic against the Palm Trees, scheduled for next Wednesday, 3, at the Neo Química Arena, valid for the second round of the Paulista championship. In a note sent to the commentator Vampire, do Grupo Prime Time Zone, the doctor of Alvinegro paulista, Dr. Ivan Grava, informed that the club is waiting for the results of the control to make an official statement.
“Covid-19 exams were carried out on athletes and staff at CT Dr. Joaquim Grava. Before any results are released, the club awaits review of the exams ”, says the note. It is worth remembering that, in January, an error by the laboratory Alra Diagnósticos pointed out ten false positives in the Corinthians squad, taking several athletes out of the game against Bahia, for the Brasileirão, in Salvador. In the control, all cases were negative.
Reporter of Grupo Prime Time Zone, Caíque Silva also brought the information that, if the new exams confirm the infections, Corinthians will ask the São Paulo Football Federation (FPF) to postpone the Derby. The request, by the way, has already been made by Palmeiras, who would like to postpone the classic due to the second game of the Copa do Brasil final, scheduled for next weekend. The Federation, at the time, did not comply with Alviverde’s wish.
