The president of Mexico's Liga MX football league announced last weekend that he has tested positive for coronavirus.

League President Enrique Bonilla said in a statement that "I don't have serious symptoms." He says he'll remain in isolation and keep up with the situation of Mexican first-division football.

Mexican first-division soccer matches were suspended this week until further notice to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.

Mexican football learned last Tuesday that the head of Atletico de San Luis team, Alberto Marrero, also had coronavirus.

Mexico has yet to declare legal bans on public gatherings, but has encouraged its citizens to maintain a healthy distance in crowded places.
