Willian was prevented from taking the field by Corinthians in Goiânia for not having fulfilled the quarantine period after having landed in Brazil on September 1st.
Last Saturday, club and player were surprised by the decision of the National Health Surveillance Agency (Anvisa), which even requested that authorities go to the hotel where the Alvinegra delegation was staying to summon Willian.
After that, the big question that arose about the case concerns when Willian will be released to attend CT Joaquim Grava and participate in the games.
Official notes issued by Anvisa and Corinthians did not clarify the doubt. At the club, by the way, the allegation is that those responsible for the decision were unable to explain how the procedure would take place from then on.
THE Sports Gazette contacted Anvisa, by e-mail, seeking an official answer, and asked how many days the player will have to be isolated, counting from last Saturday.
The agency’s press office informed that: “The start date of the 14-day quarantine is the signing of the sanitary control agreement, which took place at Guarulhos Airport.”
So, in theory, Willian will be able to resume his normal routine, training with his teammates, on Wednesday, September 15th. The re-debut of the shirt 10 by Corinthians should take place on Sunday, against the America-MG, at Neo Química Arena.
Until then, the main Corinthians support this year will have to stay at home. On Saturday, he took a flight back to São Paulo, as revealed by president Duilio Monteiro Alves to the Premiere channel.
“What worries us is this confusion, the lack of information. We were clear that Brazilian citizens did not need quarantine. We were told yesterday (Saturday) by Anvisa and the surveillance that he could not be in the field. He went to São Paulo isolated and is in quarantine”.
