The Covid nightmare once again hangs over the Serie C championship: suspended training sessions, different risk competitions, the companies that, upon returning from the Christmas holidays, found themselves with real outbreaks in the team group. The most striking cases are Triestina and Imolese which respectively recorded 20 and 18 positive cases.
The exponential increase in infections in Italy and in the rest of the world favored by the spread of the Omicron variant it inevitably also affects football. In fact, many footballers who returned from holidays tested positive for Covid in Serie A and B, but what most of all is dealing with the boom in coronavirus positivity these days is certainly the Serie C championship.
Many teams of the Italian third division that in fact in the round of tampons made before resuming training in view of the resumption of the championship have registered very high numbers of cases within the Team Group denouncing those who are in fact real Covid outbreaks. The most striking cases concern the Triestina andImolese which they announced respectively 20 and 18 positive among the members of the team group (players and staff), but a high number of infected people were also found by the Giana Erminio (9 positives), Juventus U23 (9), Virtus Francavilla (7), Pergolettese (7), Pro Sesto (6), Reggiana (4), Modena (3), Fiorenzuola (3) e Padova (3), without mentioning all the other teams who, at the moment, have only one or two infected.
A constantly evolving situation that has already forced some companies to suspend, or not resume, workouts waiting for the number of infections within the team group to be resized but that puts the competitions of several teams at serious risk (in particular Triestina-Juventus U23, Imolese-Viterbese, Giana Erminio-Mantua and the Emilian Reggiana-Modena derby scheduled between Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 January 2022) and, should the number of mini-clusters increase, it could also lead to postponement of the resumption of the championship. Everything will depend on how the situation evolves in the next few days, but what is certain is that the Covid nightmare has returned to scare Italian football starting right from Serie C.
