Goalkeeper Jonathan Orozco hit
If the club has not communicated the identity of the infected players, Jonathan Orozco, goalkeeper of Santos, has admitted to being part of it.
I was informed that I was positive, he commented on social networks. As you can see, I feel good and I’m fine, I have no symptoms, and my family is fine too. ”
The doorman admitted he did not comply with the regulations on social distancing, as revealed by the Mexican press by publishing photos showing him singing microphone in hand with two people on May 12.
I organized something at home because I like to sing, I invited two people and I want to clarify that I have not left my house at all […] I apologize, it’s not the example I want to set, pleaded Orozco, assuring that none of his teammates was present that day.
More than 6,500 deaths attributed to Covid-19 have been recorded in Mexico for nearly 60,000 cases, according to the Johns Hopkins University count.
