King Udoh, Nigerian player of italian Serie C, Pianese has contracted the CoronaVirus and become the first footballer to have contacted the virus.
King Paul Akpan Udoh is an Italian-Nigerian footballer who currently plays as a forward for Pianese. On 27th February 2020, Udoh became the first professional footballer to be diagnosed with the CoronaVirus. He has since been quarantined.
King Udoh had stincts with Juventus, Virtus Lanciano (loan), Pontedera (loan) , Fernana (loan), Fano (loan) , and Viareggio before joining Pianese in 2019.
Having started his career with Reggiana, Udoh moved to Juventus in 2011, and was immediately loaned back for a year. After progressing through the youth ranks of Juventus, Udoh secured a loan move to Serie B side Virtus Lanciano in 2016, with an option to buy at the end of the season. Failing to impress, he was returned to Juve, and then loaned to Lega Pro side Pontedera later the same year.
On 14 July 2019, he signed with Pianese.
Coronavirus is gradually spreading from China (Asia) to Italy in Europe. Some Italian Seria A matches were postponed last weekend as preventive measure against the spread of the virus.
An Italian working in Lagos recently moved from Milan where he contacted the virus to Lagos, as Nigeria Government and Health Ministry continue to put measures in place aimed at averting widespread of the virus.
