To the scandal over the sports dispossession suffered in Brazil by Boca Now another headache is added from the statements made by the Minister of Health, Carla Vizzotti, Regarding the possible mandatory isolation that would be applied to the squad due to the possible rupture of the health bubble that could have occurred with the players who had to testify in a Belo Horizonte police station after the scandal in the rematch match of the Copa Libertadores round of 16 against Atlético Mineiro.
“We are in contact with the Minister of Tourism and Sports, Matías Lammens, and with the Chief of Staff, Santiago Cafiero, to request information from the health authorities to assess the risk ”, Vizzotti said on radio Network.
The minister acknowledged that “It is an extraordinary situation” which is being analyzed, but hinted that they are analyzing the details of the movement of the members of the Xeneize delegation within the framework of respect (or not) of the health bubble. “The mechanisms were not followed,” he warned, although later he clarified that “when we assess the situation and the risk, we will make a decision.”
Vizzotti avoided giving a hasty sentence of what Boca might have to face on his return to Argentina. “As soon as the situation is taken care of, we will speak with Lammens. We have time to work on that because Boca just has a flight back at 15 ″.
In this context, however, he noted: “They have had contact outside of what is stipulated, clearly”, He added: “You have to evaluate exactly how the transfer (from the stadium to the police station), the situation and all that has been. We have seen some images, but we need the information of the club and others ”.
It is worth mentioning that Boca must play its next game on Saturday, against Banfield, for the second date of the Professional League. If, indeed, the delegation that traveled to Brazil has to isolate itself for a week, those players will not be available to face Banfield.
Government measures for those entering the country
With the priority purpose of continuing to safeguard the health of citizens in the international context in the framework of the pandemic, the National Government establishes new provisions regarding the closure of borders and entry requirements to the country.
Regarding entry into the national territory, authorized persons must comply with the completion of a test for SARS-CoV-2 upon arrival in the country and another on the seventh day of entry as a condition of completion of the mandatory isolation of one week.
Defendants and possible fines
There are seven detainees, two of whom are in a situation of aggression, therefore more complicated. The state of Minas Gerais has been notified so far that Carlos Zambrano, Diego González, Marcos Rojo and Raúl Cascini, testified as accused of assault and were charged, while Sebastián Villa, Cristian Pavón and Norberto Briasco did so in the context of damage to the heritage.
All, in principle, should face a fine of 9 thousand reais each, a total of 1800 dollars.
