A young Spanish trainer died after he was infected with the emerging coronavirus, knowing that he was suffering from leukemia.
Local media confirmed that the 21-year-old Francisco Garcia, youth coach at Atlético Portada Alta from Malaga, died Monday.
The illness of the late trainer made him more vulnerable to infection with the emerging corona virus, which spread rapidly in Spain and made it the fourth country in the world in terms of the number of deaths from the disease.
Club president Bibi Bueno said that Garcia "was a great person and a very talented coach."
Bueno continued: "The hospital called me at seven in the evening, Sunday, and informed me that his condition began to stabilize, but after an hour he was confirmed to be infected with the Corona virus alongside his malignant disease."
The club president added: "I cannot understand that this happened."
Spain became the fourth most infected country in the world, bypassing South Korea, which prompted it to study the closure of its borders.
The European country recorded about a thousand new infections with the emerging coronavirus within 24 hours, while the number of deaths rose to 297 on Monday, according to a new toll announced by the authorities.
