- Callum Hudson-Odoi became the Premier League player to contract coronavirus
- The positive test saw part of Chelsea's training facilities shut down as those who had come in contact with Hudson-Odoi self-isolated
- Lampard has now moved to confirm the star winger is making progress in his recovery journey
Frank Lampard has disclosed Callum Hudson-Odoi has almost made a full recovery after the Chelsea forward recently tested positive for the deadly coronavirus.
Hudson-Odoi was confirmed to have contracted the virus last week, prompting Chelsea to close their training facilities as players and staff moved to self-isolate.
Goal reports the London club has since reopened their training ground, but Hudson-Odoi and those he may have come contact with remain isolated.
Lampard has now come out to reveal the Blues winger's recovery is progressing well, adding the English international "almost feels his usual."
“I’m happy to say that in Callum’s case, he has made great progress and almost feels his usual self, which is obviously the news we all want to hear," Lampard told the club’s official website.
Lampard further took time to challenge everyone to take each other as the pandemic ravages the world.

"I am of course aware that not everyone can or will recover from this virus, so I urge all of the football and sporting community to continue to act responsibly and look out for the health of others," he said.
"Please do take the time to call older relatives and vulnerable people who might be alone, or offer to drop round shopping if they can’t get out. Let’s make sure we all take care of each other," the manager added.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Chelsea have re-opened their Cobham training ground for activities after it was earlier closed following the discovery that first-team player Hudson-Odoi was carrying the dreaded coronavirus.
The player tested positive for the disease and has been in isolation. The club’s training ground was immediately closed while other team players were ordered to self-isolate.
Hudson-Odoi has posted a sweaty video to show his followers he has recovered from the coronavirus which he tested positive for on Friday, March 13.
