Ghana midfielder Emmanuel Agyeman Badu speaking with Angel 102.9FM
"I think as Ghanaians we joke a lot with very serious issues. I have been reading on social media how people are circulating fake news and playing with it.
This is how Italians started with it and now the whole country is at standstill. It is never true that coronavirus doesn't infect black people. As I speak, two black footballers have contracted it in Italy. Myself, I have been placed under self-isolation because my club faced a club that's got 8 players testing positive. If I need anything, you just have to put on the club WhatsApp page so that club physio will buy for you. For one week now, I'm in the house alone and even the team physio who buys me groceries is not allowed to get in contact with me. He just places them at my doorstep and disappears. It is a very scary and sad situation here."
