Lots of negative news and one positive outcome

In two days from now we will enter into week number four that football games are missing from our lives. At almost every part of the world the virus is still present and spreading at full speed, and it looks like footballers are the most vulnerable to the disease than any other sport.
Most critical is still on the European continent where nearly everyday there is a new case. Sadly on 16 March the footballer and coach of Atletico portada alta Francisco Garcia has passed away. The 21-year-old was the youngest person to have died of the virus in Malaga (Spain). Countries cannot start with its championships and are already suspended until the end of this month, but it is now known that this will be prolong for at least another 30 days. Among the first to extend its championship is the English Premier league who is now until 30 April. Besides players, managers are infected as well.
One of the best and famous Turkish coach Fatih Terim four days ago has announced that he is positive of the disease, the Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is on the list as well, and both are recovering. But on the negative side one former ex trainer of Espanyol Benito Joanet has unfortunately died because of the virus this Monday. Former club presidents are infected as well, plus team officials. The technical director of Milan Paolo Maldini together with his son plus the Zeljeznicar vice president Jasmin Badzak have the illness, so these people are in self-isolation. Locked out from everyone are two football presidents who are also known to have catch the virus. It is believed that Kozo Tashima (Japan) and Slavisa Kokeza (Serbia) got infected when the two were present at the European football association congress in Amsterdam (Netherlands) on 03 March.
Of all these negative reports finally there is one positive outcome that comes from Germany. While he was the first footballer in the championship to be tested positive, this young man became the first player in the country to get cured. At the beginning of the week Luca Kilian beat the enemy as he was isolated back home in Dortmund with a big help from his mother who is a nurse. The 20-year-old Paderborn defender instills hope that everyone can beat this pandemic if a person is complying under strict rules.
