Ronaldo defined the PCR tests as “bullshit”, which outraged the Italian Minister of Agriculture.
Cristiano Ronaldo confirmed yesterday, Wednesday, publicly that he remains infected with the covid-19 and therefore could not play for Juventus against Barcelona. The captain of the National Team, who is quarantined and asymptomatic, turned to Instagram to explain that he “feels good and healthy”, but made a comment about the swab tests that left him under fire in Italy: “PCR is bullshit. “
At a time when Italy, like other countries, is experiencing a daily increase in the number of people infected, the “outburst” of the CR7, which has since been eradicated, fell badly.
Even after virologist Roberto Burioni resorted to irony to criticize the comment – “I welcome my colleague Cristiano Ronaldo to the large group of virologists. It will be very useful in the next match against ophthalmologists”, he wrote -, the minister Agriculture, Forestry and Food was tougher. “Cristiano Ronaldo should think a little more when he calls the PCR test” bullshit “, wrote Teresa Bellanova, stressing that, as a public figure, CR7 must” perceive the burden of responsibility “that this entails, mainly” in an emergency situation “as the current one.
