Former goalkeeper of Juventus : Stefano Tacconi has downplayed the seriousness of the coronavirus, calling it “just the flu”.
Italy has registered more than 30 thousand deaths from COVID-19 since then, the virus became a global pandemic in March, but Tacconi claims he’s not much worse than a cold:
“For me, the coronavirus is only a flu. When they tell me at the conference that there were thousands of deaths, tell me which ones were from the coronavirus? You can’t describe them all to one cause. I would like to resume the game, even with fans.”
