Almeida forced to retire from Giro d’Italia

The Portuguese, who suffered flu symptoms during the night, tested positive for Covid.

“Almeida woke up last night from persistent pain in his throat and the test gave a positive result. We observe strict rules of prevention and, in addition to sanitizing the environments which the team uses each day (cars, buses, hotel rooms, etc.), we keep the athletes themselves in single rooms in order to limit very close contacts. However, despite these precautions they clearly do not provide 100% shelter as we have seen, “ said Michele De Grandi, UAE Team Emirates doctor at the Giro d’Italia.
