Liverpool star has shown little symptoms of Covid-19 since his positive test result.
The Egypt internationalMohamed Salah
who tested positive for Coronavirus while on international duty is suffering from “mild” symptoms of the disease confirms Egypt doctor Mohamed Abou Elela.
“He’s a mild case - he doesn’t have severe symptoms,” Abou Elela told the Associated Press. “He has to self-isolate in Egypt until his test returns negative and then, of course, he can travel back.
“The concerns from the Egyptian authorities are because Mo for Egypt is special. Everyone here wants to help and ... to do whatever the whole country can do."
When asked about whether the 28-year-old caught the disease following his brother’s wedding or not the doctor responded: “I cannot deny. No one knows because ... unfortunately, we still don’t know everything about the virus. My answer is maybe yes, maybe no."
Salah who was accused of breaking social distancing protocols during his brother’s wedding was defended by his hometown mayor saying: "All what has been said is false, it does not make sense to hug someone five times in the same wedding”.
“Also Salah was extremely cautious during the one-hour wedding, he never took his mask off except for taking photographs. Salah is fine now, he does not show any symptoms, I talked to his father and uncle.
“Trezeguet was the only player who came to the wedding with Salah, he was also extremely cautious."
It is reported that the player will miss both his upcoming games with Egypt andLiverpool
