The strategist who gave Isurus the title of the 2019 LLA Clausura, mentioned that the players in his squad watch movies, exercise and sunbathe on the terrace of their house to clear themselves during isolation.
"This situation worries us. As a team we are responsible and we stay informed to know what we can do to reduce the risk of contagion, but when competing that remains in the background and you focus on work," said the 26-year-old strategist.

The ALL will resume this weekend, after a two-week hiatus in designing a contingency plan to compete without spreading the coronavirus.
Riot Games, the company that owns League of Legends, reported on March 18 that the League would take place in an 'online' format from the gaming houses of the eight teams.
Isurus is in fourth place in the LLA with five wins and three losses, two of them achieved in week two in which they lost to Rainbow7 and All Knights.
In week four, the date the tournament was suspended, the sharks fell against Infinity Esports, the top spot in the competition alongside All Knights.
Del Castillo attributes his losses to poor communication between his players.
"It is thought that because we did not make so many changes in the squad we are going to win the games easily, but the reality is that we reached a very high point at the end of 2019, that we won the tournament and went to the World Cup; we are trying to retake that level "he exposed.
Yeti said that the level of Infinity, All Knights and Rainbow7, the teams that are above them in the leaderboard, increased due to their reinforcements.
"I don't think we have reinforced badly, I think the team is at a good individual level, I don't think we needed to have made a radical change of players," he added.
For this campaign, Isurus hired the Mexican Jirall (Daniel del Castillo), in the upper lane, who last year was an analyst for the LLA and replaced the Uruguayan Buggax (Mateo Aroztegui).
"It generates pressure to be the two-time champion team, all eyes are on us and when things do not go well, they are magnified. The incorporation of Jirall plays an important role because there are processes in which he had not finished adapting, which ended up affecting , especially in the crucial points of the games, "he concluded.
