Test results second rest day Giro: Fernando Gaviria again positive on corona

Two people in and around the Giro tested positive on the second rest day of the Tour of Italy. Organizer RCS and the international cycling union UCI report this.

This is Fernando Gaviria of UAE Team Emirates and a staff member of AG2R La Mondiale. All two of them have been quarantined. On the second day of rest of Giro, last Monday, 492 corona-virus animals were taken.

For Gaviria, its the second time hes been infected with the coronavirus. The Colombian top sprinter was one of the first riders to test positive for the virus. That happened at the end of February after the UAE Tour. Gaviria was very sick at that time, that is not the case for the time being. โ€œGaviria was isolated immediately after the test result and feels well and is completely asymptomatic,โ€ reports his team.โ€

On the first rest day, last week, two riders including Steven Kruijswijk and six team supervisors were tested positively. It was reason for Jumbo-Visma and Mitchelton-Scott to withdraw the entire team.

The Tour of Italy continues on Tuesday with the sixteenth stage from Udine to San Daniele del Friuli, a hill ride over 229 kilometers. The Portuguese Joรฃo Almeida is the leader, followed by the Dutchman Wilco Kelderman in 15 seconds.
