Talented Juventus player Cristiano Ronaldo will not return to Juventus for the time being because of the spread of coronavirus.

The Portuguese will remain in his native home Madeira, after he was granted special permission to return to Italy amid the coronavirus emergency.

According to 90 Min, this new development has occurred since Italy is one of the countries worst affected by COVID-19, with the highest number of reported cases outside of China.

Another measure implored to make sure that the outbreak does not spread is the mass gatherings that has been banned by the government and the suspension of  Serie A for a month. Other measures are the restrictions on travel in and out of the country.

As for Ronaldo, he has returned to Madeira on Monday to visit his family, and had been granted permission to return to Italy on a private flight.

Despite the suspension of their upcoming league fixtures, Juventus trained on Wednesday leaving out Ronaldo.

Juventus has made a statement on its website. The content of the statement read, “Cristiano Ronaldo has not trained and remains in Madeira awaiting events to unfold with the current health emergency.”

Ronaldo’s latest reaction concerning the coronavirus spread was triggered by the club confirming that defender ​Daniele Rugani has tested positive for coronavirus.
