In conversation with radio station Cope, Pepe Reina admitted that he has shown signs of coronavirus infection a week ago. The on-loan Aston Villa goalkeeper was quoted as saying “Last week it was my turn to go through the bug. 'It has been a different week, of taking precautions not to infect the people who live with me. Here tests are not conducted unless you are [in a] very bad [state]. Speaking to the doctors, the symptoms I had were of it, without official confirmation of it but everything pointed to it. We are very privileged people. We have a big house, with a garden. I think of the people who live in a 70m squared apartment with two children and for me they are people who are showing a lot of strength.”
