president has tested positive for COVID-19 and he is currently in isolation.

The 58-year-old has shown signs of a fever and has been coughing a bit but reportedly he will still work in a limited capacity from home.

“Lega announces that President Paolo Dal Pino tested positive for COVID-19 following the test carried out yesterday,” said a statement on the organisation’s official website.

“The president, symptomatic and in isolation at his home, will now follow the procedures provided for by the health protocol.”

This indecisiveness prompted president Steven Zhang to call Dal Pino a clown in an Instagram story.
