Gori (mayor of Bergamo): “The Atalanta-Valencia was a biological bomb”
“The party was a biological bomb.” Giorgio Gori, mayor of Bergamo, agreed to an interview via Facebook in which he pointed out the match between Atalanta and Valencia played in Milan as one of the main sources of contagion. “At that time we did not know what was happening. The first patient in Italy was on February 23. If the virus was already circulating, the forty thousand fans who went to the San Siro stadium were infected. No one knew that the virus was already circulating among us Many watched the game in groups and there were many contacts that night. The virus passed from one to the other. “Obviously, Gori considers that there were many more causes of the contagion. ” The party was not everything because the spark was truly in the Alzano Lombardo hospital, with a patient with unrecognized pneumonia and who infected patients, doctors and nurses. That is the focus of the outbreak,” he said.It is not surprising that Valencia was the first real focus of contagion within the Spanish League . In the first team, 35% have contracted the coronavirus, including Garay, the first declared positive in the League, Gayá and Mangala . The rest of the club has preferred to keep them anonymous. Yesterday, Tuesday, the first positive case was reported in Atalanta. The reserve goalkeeper Sportiello, who in Mestalla, in the game behind closed doors, was the starter.The players were also joined by the Press collective. In fact, the first known contagion in Valencia was that of the journalist Enrique Mateu , who traveled to Milan to cover the game and who has spent 25 days in hospital receiving hospital discharge a few days ago.
