This is a period of self-quarantine and isolation for some, for others — those struggling with the coronavirus attacking their lungs — it’s much more dire.

Chelsea’s most prominent known case was 19-year-old winger Callum Hudson-Odoi, who was revealed to have tested positive on March 13. Thankfully, given his age and access to the best quality care money can buy, he’s reportedly quite close to 100 per cent, if not there already.

Hudson-Odoi already relayed some good news immediately after the confirmed diagnosis, but here’s the official website with further happy tidings.

We are pleased to report Callum Hudson-Odoi is now feeling fine and back to his usual self following the period of self-isolation required after the player tested positive for COVID-19.

In addition to feeling good, the young winger is hard at work training at home to build and maintain his fitness, as are the rest of the Chelsea squad.

”Delighted you’re recovered from the virus that forced every country on earth to press pause and imprison themselves in whatever they call home, now back to work!”

Ah, the life of a footballer.

We’re all thankful Callum has improved enough to feel like himself, and are eagerly awaiting the report that there’s no medical sign of the virus remaining. We know that he is in one of the best (age-)brackets to recover from it, but it’s still incredibly scary.

But since good news is in short supply these days, this’ll do.

Stay safe and, if you can, stay at home.
