Hellas Verona midfielder Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu says he's afraid to turn on the television amid the coronavirus which has wrecked havoc in the world.

The 29-year-old has warned players to stick to the basic precautionary measures touted by the expert.

The Ghana international has offered an advice to his compatriot to stay safe.

"Players must stay away from Sunday training games (also called Special Sunday) because the virus is mainly contracted through contact. I'm afraid to turn on the television because of how the virus was reported," he told Accra FM

"What I have seen is that Coronavirus must be taken seriously. When it all started there were theories that he could not infect a black-skinned person.

"Now I'm sure everyone knows that he doesn't know race or color. We have to stay home. This is the only option. Just like the president said, if you have nothing to do in the city, stay home. "

136 Ghanaians have tested positive for the virus and claimed 4 lives.
