And now the club have provided an update on the health of their academy graduate revealing that he is now feeling fine.
The statement read: “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.
“It was first announced on Friday 13 March that having been tested for the virus, Hudson-Odoi had tested positive, a result that meant as well as self-isolation, the men’s first-team building at Cobham was initially closed while it underwent a deep-cleaning procedure.
“The player took to social media soon after to reassure supporters he was recovering well.”
After Callum Hudson-Odoi was tested positive, the other Chelsea players have been under the mandatory 14 days self-isolation and up until now all of them are doing ok.
Antonio Rudiger told the club on Friday: ‘Everything is alright. We are still self-isolating, which means staying at home, so that’s what I’m doing.
‘This is something new for everyone and it’s a little bit scary. I am a very family person but I cannot even see them at the moment. It’s not possible to fly because you don’t know if you will catch something and bring it home.’
