The virus has been doing rounds in the France camp in the Qatar World Cup, and many people believe it is transmitted by air conditioning at football stadiums.
Adrien Rabiot, Dayot Upamecano and Kingsley Coman were the first to catch the virus and missed the semi-final clash against Morocco, which France won 2-0.
Konate and Varane have become the latest victims, and are being monitored by Les Bleus ahead of the final against Argentina on Sunday.
Konate replaced Upamecano against Morocco, and the Liverpool centre-back produced a solid performance to get his side over the line.
However, the participation of Varane and Konate in the finals is not at risk at the moment, and the centre-back pairing is expected to recover soon.
Coman is also said to be feeling well, but it remains to be seen whether Rabiot and Upamecano will recover in time for the final.
Theo Hernandez, who was on the scoresheet against Morocco, took some knocks in the semi-final. His fitness is being closely monitored by the medical staff, although the signs aren’t worrying.
Notwithstanding the virus surge, Didier Deschamps’ men have reached the final of the World Cup for the second consecutive time.
The defending champions will look to retain the title, a feat only achieved by Brazil and Italy in World Cup history.
