Symptoms – which in most cases include abdominal pain, vomiting, nausea, and diarrhea – range from moderate to severe, so there are varying degrees of concern. Midfielder Eduardo, who was out of the match against Corinthians on Saturday, and left-back Hugo were hospitalized to undergo tests and receive medication, but there was no need for them to be hospitalized.

This Tuesday, Eduardo already felt able to train and joined the rest of the group. Hugo, on the other hand, continued to recover, as did Saravia, who also reported having suffered symptoms. The two did not participate in the training.

Other athletes reported milder symptoms, but felt able to participate in training and worked normally, such as Rafael, Lucas Fernandes and Adryelson.
The left-back, who left the match against Corinthians in the 12th minute of the first half, also reported some symptoms of gastrointestinal virus and was out of training this Tuesday. He is recovering from a slight injury to his right thigh and should miss the team next Saturday, against Ceará, at Nilton Santos.
