Alarm returned. (HANDLE)



(ANSA) - ROME, FEBRUARY 27 - Alarm returned. The quarantine of the Italian golfers in Oman lasted a few hours: Lorenzo Gagli was in fact negative in the coronavirus test and in the Tuscan test in Muscat with Edoardo Molinari, for this reason he was allowed to play the Oman Open, the tournament of the 'European Tour. Azzurri regularly on the field after reversing the maximum continental golf circuit which, due to an excess of prudence, had initially decided to exclude the two Italian players from the field by isolating them in a hotel room. First the stop, then the go-ahead arrived after the result of the examination communicated to the European Tour board by the Ministry of Health of Oman. "It is a difficult situation on a global level - explained Keith Pelley, CEO of the European Tour - and all decisions are and will always be taken while protecting the general safeguard".
"I'm fine, I hope this nightmare will end soon" wrote Dodo Molinari on Twitter in the morning, reassuring everyone about his excellent health: shortly after the go-ahead for the Turin player on the pitch with his Florentine team-mate. Nightmare finally behind.
The FIG, through Federal Councilor Marco Durante, also confirmed that the two were well and could have played the tournament: "No viral infection, only unnecessary alarmism.
Forza Azzurri ".
Yet the story had, in the light of the worldwide alarm on the epidemic, strong repercussions all over the world. The Spanish sports newspaper Marca had also spoken of "hospitalization" and of the symptoms, those of Gagli, "similar to those caused by the coronavirus". Contagion panic broke out in Oman: a misunderstanding resulting from a request for a yellow fever vaccine ordered by the European Tour for players registered in the Kenya Open (12-15 March) to which Gagli was unable to submit for way of a slight influence contracted ten days before. After training regularly in Muscat and after being transported by car and minibus with dozens of other colleagues, Eurotour, who had subjected the 34-year-old Florentine to a visit on arrival in Oman, decided to isolate him in a room hotel. The same fate has fallen to 'Dodo' Molinari. First the fear, then the anger, then the happy ending. Azzurri on the field in Oman, but the damage remains. (HANDLE).
