In Gyeonggi province, 13 cases are confirmed at Bundang medical center, and all 6 hospitalized and discharged patients were admitted to the same ward. The contact tracing is still investigation. The cases who need to be hospitalized among the inpatients who had contact with the confirmed patients are currently in a single room isolation.

 

KCDC urges to local government to cooperate with facilities as cases are confirmed around group facilities, multi-use facilities, and medical centers. Also KCDC recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, and social distancing to avoid population crowding or cancel/suspend gathering activities.
