Daniele Rugani was the first top-flight footballer who tested positive for coronavirus disease or COVID-19, which killed 827 people in Italy and infected 12,000. As a result, Inter Milan said that “all competitive activities have been suspended until further notice,” adding that the club was “currently taking steps to put all the necessary procedures into place.”
