A man has been photographed while wearing a Barcelona shirt with ‘CORONA VIRUS’ written on the back in place of the player name.
The new coronavirus, COVID-19, is continuing to spread panic across Europe causing the suspension of elite football tournaments throughout much of the world.
My “I don’t have coronavirus” shirt seems to have a lot of people asking me if I have coronavirus.

The photo, purported to have been taken somewhere in Africa, shows a fan riding in what looks to be a minibus.
His Barcelona replica shirt is instantly recognisable, the number is unclear but clearly emblazoned above it is ‘CORONA VIRUS’.
