Portuguese President Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa is on a diplomatic visit to Belgium. He also learned that Ronaldo was diagnosed with the virus and wished Ronaldo a speedy recovery.
The President of Portugal told the media: "I already know about this and I wish him a speedy recovery. I have communicated with the Football Association and they told me that they are testing the players for the virus every day. The players come from different countries. We can directly control every situation."
"I hope Cristiano Ronaldo can recover soon. Tomorrow I will cheer for the Portuguese national team. I know that they have played the game without Cristiano Ronaldo not long ago and won."
At the same time, the President of Portugal reiterated that Ronaldo did not have any symptoms: "C Ronaldo is a asymptomatic infected person. He tested positive in the test result, and the result was still positive after the re-examination."
"However, it should be noted that Ronaldo is also from abroad, so this has nothing to do with the epidemic prevention situation in Portugal. But it must be remembered that this situation is not only present in Portugal and Belgium, but in all of Europe. And the whole world. This is not just a problem within Portugal, but a cross-border problem. It is very difficult to stop it."
"For all governments and countries, this is still a major challenge. To overcome it, cooperation across Europe will be crucial."
