In the early morning of October 17, Italian Sports Minister Spadafra stated in an interview that Ronaldo’s flight back to Italy from Portugal once again violated the epidemic prevention regulations.
Ronaldo was found to be infected with the new crown virus during the training of the Portuguese national team. He flew back to Italy on a special medical plane the next day and began to isolate at his home in Turin.
Spadafra said: "I think this is a violation of the epidemic prevention regulations, if the health bureaus of the two countries do not have special permission."
However, according to previous media reports, Ronaldo has obtained the permission of the health department.
