El-Gharbia governer Tarek Rahmy has revealed that six family members of Mohamed Salah have COVID-19 symptoms.
It was announced on Friday morning that Liverpool and Egypt winger Mohamed Salah has tested positive for coronavirus, twice.
This means that, for now, he won’t be able to travel to Togo to compete in the 2021 AFCON qualifiers with the Pharaohs.
Salah had just attended his brother’s wedding on Tuesday during the international break, where his Egyptian compatriot and Aston Villa winger, Mahmoud Trezeguet, was also present, putting him at risk as well.
And to make matters worse, the El-Gharbia governer has revealed symptoms of COVID-19 have shown on six members of the Liverpool star’s family.
“We have advised Mohamed Salah’s family against contacting any new person to ensure their safety.
“The symptoms shown on the six members are just coughing and runny noses, and only one of them has a slight fever.
“We have instructed Salah’s family to self-isolate in their houses for 14 days to make sure everyone is safe,” he added.
Rahmy has also announced that all the houses and streets in Mohamed Salah’s home town Nagrig will go through a disinfection process to make sure that that virus doesn’t spread.
Salah missed Egypt’s 1-0 victory over Togo on Saturday and will miss their second clash in Lome just two days from now, on November 17.
Additionally, Salah could also be a doubt for Liverpool’s Premier League encounter against Leicester City following the international break.
