Liga MX president Enrique Bonilla has become the second Mexican soccer official to test positive for the coronavirus in three days.

“So far I have no serious symptom and I will remain in quarantine, as indicated by health authorities,” Bonilla said in a statement on Friday, March 20.

Three days earlier, Alberto Marrero, the president of Atlético San Luís, was also found to have contracted the respiratory disease.

According to Mexico’s Public Health Secretariat, there are now more than 200 confirmed coronavirus cases in the country, and there have been two deaths from the virus.

Liga MX, Mexican football’s top division, suspended its Clausura season one week earlier to help counter the spread of the virus.
