Roma swoop in to aid coronavirus battle in Italy as players and staff donate a day's wages


Roma have increased their efforts to battle the coronavirus pandemic, with the Seria A club set to fund three intensive care ventilators and eight beds for a hospital in the Italian capital.

Italy has overtaken China as the nation worst affected by the outbreak, with the death toll rising past the 4,000 mark.

With the Serie A season on hold and at threat of being cancelled, Roma have focused their efforts into helping battle the disease.

They have already funded 13,000 masks and 120 bottles of hand sanitiser for Rome hospitals, as well as delivering 8,000 pairs of protective gloves and 2,000 bottles of hand gel to churches.

Now, the Stadio Olimpico side's players and coaching staff have donated a day's wages to aid the fightback.

Lombardy has been the worst affected area in the country, with the Milan clubs being some of the first to play behind closed doors and then cancel their matches altogether.
