On Tuesday, the Portuguese national team announced that Cristiano Ronaldo has tested positive for COVID-19 and is currently in isolation. Ronaldo was currently playing for the national team and will not be facing Sweden’s national team in their upcoming game this week. The statement released by the club said, “Selection A League of Nations qualification game Cristiano Ronaldo was released from the work of the National Team after a positive test for COVID-19, so he will not face Sweden. The Portuguese international is doing well, without symptoms, and in isolation. Following the positive case, the remaining players underwent new tests this Tuesday morning, all with a negative result, and are available to Fernando Santos for training this afternoon, in Cidade do Futebol. The game, counting for the qualification phase of the League of Nations, is scheduled for Wednesday, at 19:45, in Alvalade.”

What is also concerning is a picture Ronaldo posted of himself and his teammates crowded tightly together at dinner just a day before his positive test. So far no other members of the national team have received positive tests.
