It has been almost over three weeks since Cristiano Ronaldo tested positive for coronavirus and went into self-isolation. But the good news reaching us today states that the 35-year old might be allowed to rejoin the rest of the squad soonest.
Despite the Portugal star still positive for COVID-19, reports in Italy claim he can end self-isolation in three days time since he has shown no symptoms since he tested positive. After testing positive for coronavirus on October 13, he has returned further positive swab test twice.
The further, meanwhile, has remained in quarantine for the last 18 days but without symptoms. Now, according to Tuttosport, the protocol approved by the Technical-Scientific committee in Italy allows asymptomatic people with a low viral load to leave self-isolation after a period of 21 days as it is actually impossible for them to infect others.
Although Cristiano Ronaldo won’t still be allowed to participate in any official game until he returns negative COVID-19 swab test. The report also stated that he could be back to training on Tuesday but it’s not certain if he could be a part of group training.

All we know is that Ronaldo is required to test negative for coronavirus 48 hours before a Serie A game and 24 hours before a Champions League match before he could feature.
As we take the positives from the good news of today, we await your come back, Cristiano Ronaldo! Our team wish you a speedy recovery!
