This is the footballer Nelson da Luz, who tested positive in the covid-19 test made on his arrival in Portugal, where he signed a three-year contract with Vitoria de Guimarães, of the 1st Portuguese football league.

The resumption of training in the country at federate level, with a view to the start of national competitions, will require a rigorous approach to the guidelines of the Multi-sectoral Commission for Prevention and Combat of Covid-19, at risk of an increase in cases.

Tests, at least three times a week, limitation of the number of sportspersons and technicians at work, absence of public at the stadiums and distancing in team transports are among the recommended measures.
