In addition, three confirmed cases(#3, #8, and #17) were tested negative twice in a row and will be discharged later today. Seven of the confirmed cases have been discharged so far.

 

COVID-19 extracted from patient specimen will be sent to relevant ministries and research institutes for virus culture and incubation. This will accelerate development of diagnostics, therapeutics, and vaccines.

 

KCDC advised the public to get tested only if they have symptoms and epidemiological link. Testing for COVID-19 should be determined by clinician’s opinion. Furthermore, asking for a certificate to prove a negative test result for school or work should be discouraged.
