Reports claim Paris Saint Germain had instructed their players to isolate themselves and Silva have been spotted in his homeland ever since.
Silva’s wife Isabelle posted on her social media handle and said: “The virus is everywhere. “My husband is waiting on a notice to start working again. “We are sad about all this right now but we believe that all this will pass soon.”
Neymar also posted on Instagram encouraging people to take precautions with a photo that said: “The virus doesn’t move around, people do.” However, in the midst of staying away from France, Brazilian defender Marquinhos refused to leave and stayed put in the French capital.
