80.1% of the total cases have epidemiological links and 19.9% are either under investigation or sporadic cases. More details on the epidemiological links within each region or city are shown in the Table 1 next page. Distribution of the cases by sex and age groups are as indicated in Table 2.


There have been 90 cases confirmed at the call center located in Guro-gu, Seoul since 8 March. The epidemiological investigation and contact tracing are underway. 77 cases were known to work on the 11th floor. 553 other employees of the same company are currently under self-quarantine even though they work on different floors. Diagnostic test will be conducted as well if necessary.


Since the contact with the confirmed cases in a closed place increases the possibility of transmission, it is recommended to work at home or adjust desk locations so as to keep a certain distance among people in the office. More detailed guidelines for local governments and high-risk working environment will be distributed soon.


Considering the increasing trend of global transmission, Central Disease Control Headquarters additionally designated Italy and Iran as the quarantine inspection required areas. Therefore, anyone with suspected symptoms should submit a health questionnaire at the point of entry, pass the special entry procedure, and install self-diagnosis application on their cell phone. They could be quarantined at the quarantine station and get tested for COVID-19 when necessary.
