Sept 28 (Reuters) - Fourteen team members and staff of Serie A side Genoa have now tested positive for COVID-19, the club said in a statement on Monday.
Genoa had reported at the weekend that Denmark international midfielder Lasse Schone and goalkeeper Mattia Perin had contracted the virus.
“Genoa CFC announce that after today’s tests, the number of COVID-19 positive employees has risen to 14 team members and staff,” the club said on their website (www.genoacfc.it).
“The club has activated all the procedures according to the protocol and informed the authorities. The club will provide updates as the situation evolves.”
Genoa lost 6-0 at Napoli on Sunday and are due to play Torino at home next Saturday. (Reporting by Alan Baldwin, editing by Clare Fallon)
