World Boxing Association (WBA) President Gilberto Jesús Mendoza tested positive for Covid-19 this week.
Mendoza showed some mild symptoms that required the test that came out positive. For the leader, care and health have been a priority in this complicated stage that we are living and this is why he will increase the security measures to protect himself and his environment.
His doctors have advised him to remain in isolation, rest, and follow all instructions for a prompt recovery.
At the WBA family we are united to support President Mendoza, who has been at the forefront to raise his voice in solidarity with several members of the organization who have already gone through this situation, in addition to supporting the athletes who have had to leave the ring momentarily due to positive results for Covid-19.
Mendoza said he feels good and motivated to return to work for boxing in a few days. The WBA invites everyone not to lower their guard and to comply with the necessary safety measures such as the use of masks and social distancing.
