Real Madrid have activated the protocol for coronavirus after one of the basketball team tested positive for the virus. Squads for both the basketball and football teams have been put into self-imposed isolation to avoid the virus spreading any further throughout the institution. Santiago Bernabeu tours, as well as the training ground, have been closed.
Neither team has trained since the positive test was confirmed.
Here is the official statement released by the club:
"Real Madrid C. F. announces that a member of our basketball first team has tested positive for coronavirus.
The recommendation of remaining in quarantine has been followed with immediate effect, with this measure applied to both the basketball and football first teams, given that the two squads share the facilities at Real Madrid City.
In addition, a decision has been made to close our training ground and it is recommended that all Real Madrid staff who work at Real Madrid City remain in quarantine.
The EuroLeague basketball match and the LaLiga football fixture scheduled for today and tomorrow will not be played."
As announced soon after, all LaLiga matches have been suspended for at least two weeks.
