Defending Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich have transformed scarves into protective masks in a method to prevent the spread of the coronavirus in Germany. The coronavirus Germany situation has caused the suspension of the Bundesliga indefinitely. Earlier in March, Bayern Munich midfielders Leon Goretzka and Joshua Kimmich set up a fund called 'WeKickCorona' along with the help of the Bundesliga club for charities in need of financial assistance amid the coronavirus Germany situation.
