Tottenham Hotspur have sent a questionnaire to accredited journalists, regarding travel and the Coronavirus ahead of tomorrow’s press conference.
Media from around the world typically congregate at Tottenham’s Hotspur Way training ground on a Friday lunchtime to pose their questions to head coach Jose Mourinho ahead of this weekend’s match against Wolverhampton Wanderers in North London.
The questionnaire asks journalists to detail any possible exposure to affected countries/people in order to help safe guard the club, employees and visitors.
Globally, more than 80,000 people in nearly 50 countries have been infected by the coronavirus which has been given the name COVID-19 (BBC).
Major sporting events have already been cancelled following the outbreak including a number of Serie A matches in Italy’s top flight along with the upcoming Six Nations rugby international between Ireland and Italy in Dublin.
More cases of the outbreak have now been reported outside than inside China which has led to World Health Organization head Dr Tedros Ghebreyesus admitting it has the potential of a pandemic.
Alasdair Gold confirmed the existence of the questionnaire on his Twitter account.
Spurs joining other Premier League clubs in following government guidelines regarding Coronavirus and asking media to fill in a form about possible exposure to affected countries/people before tomorrow's press conference. Makes sense when dealing with media from across the world.
