People should be "emotionally more open" after the coronavirus pandemic, says Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta after his recovery.
Arteta, 38, tested positive for the virus on March 12, but since then recovered after self-isolation.
"We are in a world here where everything is social media, everything is WhatsApp text," said the Spaniard.
"But how important is it to touch each other, feel each other and hug?
"I miss it with a lot of people I love.
"We have to be emotionally more open. We have to tell us what we are feeling."
Arteta said he felt bad after confirming that Evangelos Marinakis – owner of the Greek team's Olympiakos, who played against Arsenal in the Europa League in February – had the virus on 10 March.
On Thursday, Arteta said he was feeling "completely recovered" and asked people to follow government advice on staying at home.
"It is a virus that is putting the world aside and is transforming everything that we prioritize in life. So we have to learn this lesson", he told the Arsenal website.
"We cannot in two or three months – if we can get over it quickly – forget about it, because it is very important."
The Arsenal players were due to appear for training earlier this week after competing for a two-week isolation period, but their return has been delayed.
Arteta said his main concern was his three children after his wife and nanny contracted the virus.
Arteta was isolated in a bedroom and bathroom for two or three days, but his wife fell ill shortly afterwards.
"I am a very positive person and I try to take the time to say OK, what can we get out of this?" he said.
"I did not have the opportunity to wake up with my children, dedicate my time and listen to them.
"We are at home together and we are really enjoying these moments."
