“I want to thank you for the show of encouragement. I'm home now and I'm feeling fine. Everything is controlled. Now I have to recover as soon as possible to return to my colleagues stronger. I stay at home and Much Elche “, Jonathas has commented on his social networks.

After the positive, the franjiverde club has informed that all club staff (staff, technicians and employees) will remain in quarantine at their homes for 15 days.

By last, Elche has also closed the Martínez Valero facilities to the public. The club, despite Jonathas' positive, has confirmed that “it has been following a series of preventive measures for days to prevent the spread of COVID-19.”
