Recently, COVID-19 transmissions are occurring through various venues such as religious small group meetings, club meetings, door-to-door sales group meetings in Seoul Metropolitan Region (Seoul and nearby areas) with high population density and foot traffic. If the transmission continues and occurs at a highly crowded and confined space with a large number of people, a massive outbreak may occur at any time.

 

  - Recent reports of cluster outbreaks show that transmission is occurring rapidly in closed and crowded spaces with initial chain of transmission still unidentified. KCDC noted that it is a cause for concern.

   * Chain of transmission under investigation = 56 cases (8.9%), based on the 627 cases reported during the 2-week period from 26 May (0:00) to 9 June (0:00)

 

  - Since COVID-19 outbreak can occur from any venue under crowded, confined, and close-contact environment, residents of the Seoul Metropolitan Region are advised to postpone social plans and gatherings or use non-face-to-face alternatives and avoid using public venues such as restaurants and bars.

 

In particular, elderly people who are 65 years old or older are requested to avoid any enclosed space that is poorly ventilated where a large number of people can gather together.

 

  - If such an occasion is unavoidable, sharing meals and singing should be avoided. Masks should be worn and frequent hand washing or sanitizing should be practiced.

 

  - It is also important for the elderly is take good care of any chronic medical conditions they have and exercise regularly.

 

 

KCDC expressed gratitude for the 62 recovered people who signed up to participate in the development of COVID-19 plasma therapy and encouraged more eligible people to participate.

 

  - Plasma therapy requires a large amount of blood as it involves formulating a concentrated form of the antibodies and immunoglobulins from the blood of people who have recovered from COVID-19.

 

  - Plasma therapy requires a large amount of blood as it involves concentrated formulations of antibodies and immunoglobulins from the blood plasma of recovered patients.
