As early as yesterday it was reported that Man United will go ahead with training as per normal. However, since then things have soon developed with the club cancelling training altogether today.
In almost less than 24 hours from announcing training will continue as per normal season would, the Old Trafford side have decided to scrap training after the death toll in England has risen to 55 deaths.
United was one of the clubs taking certain measures in various areas other than calling off training to help stop the spread of the Coronavirus. This was limiting the number of visitors or patrons at the training venue per session, as well as brushing up thoroughly on hygiene.

United’s training will go ahead as normal amid the current COVID-19 pandemic. Due to the mass, worldwide outbreak teams’ preparations have taken drastic changes.

The scare increases and the threat involves everybody. It’s only sensible to be stopping all football, including all club activities and trainings. If the death toll rises, even more, they will surely push back the restart date of the 2019-2020 campaign.
Then what would be the point in training if this is the case?
The change in news
The move comes in the wake of unprecedented peacetime measures to try to control the spread of the coronavirus pandemic. Those measures were announced on Monday evening as the death toll of people with coronavirus in the UK reached 55.

This too sets the date back for a Paul Pogba return, who was scheduled to make a comeback today at Carrington’s Aon Training Complex.
Right now April 3 is looking an early date, maybe too early. The way COVID-19 is spreading we could see a later restoration of the Premier League. Let’s just hope the decrease is as rapid as the spread is.
