South Korean President Moon Jae-in raised awareness of the Corona virus or COVID-19 outbreak to the highest level.
This was done after a surge in infection with the Corona virus outbreak, which caused pneumonia, in this country of ginseng.
“The COVID-19 incident is facing a dangerous turning point,” Moon Jae-in said after a government meeting to discuss the handling of the Corona virus outbreak as reported by Channel News Asia on Sunday, February 23, 2020.
Moon Jae-in said the government raised the level of vigilance to the highest level according to expert advice.
This Corona outbreak occurred in South Korea after a number of infections were detected in a religious group in the Daegu area last week.
This makes the number of cases of infection increase to 556 people or the highest outside China and the Diamond Princess cruise ship in Yokohama, Japan.
Reuters launches the Corona virus outbreak has spread from Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China since December 2020.
The death toll from Corona virus infection has exceeded two thousand with the number of infections reaching around 77 thousand. This outbreak has spread to 24 other countries and killed around ten people.
South Korea on Thursday, February 20, 2020, reported the first case of death from the corona virus in the country. State of Ginseng also reported that there were 22 new cases of patients infected with the corona virus so that a total of 104 patients were treated for the deadly virus.
The Central Agency for Disease Control and Prevention in South Korea explained the exact cause of one patient who died from the corona virus will be further investigated. Most new cases of patients infected with the corona virus come from Daegu City or precisely when a woman, 61 years old, who was unknowingly infected with the corona virus came to a Jesus Shincheonji church service, then she went to the hospital and tests showed she was positively affected by the corona virus. .
South Korean Deputy Minister of Health Kim Kang-lip said the situation was extremely severe in his country. This is reinforced by the increasing number of cases due to the deadly COVID-19 virus that has hit South Korea.
South Korea experienced a severe anxiety over the Corona virus outbreak (COVID-19) after research showed that this deadly outbreak spreads more quickly than expected. Concern increasingly became after two passengers on the Diamond Princess Cruise Ship were found dead due to the corona virus.
Previously China reported a significant reduction in new cases of the Corona virus, but the data had changed due to a misdiagnosis so that the data that appeared could not quell citizen concerns about its spread.
Corona virus appeared in the city of Wuhan in China at the end of 2019 and has now infected around 75,000 people and killed 2,100 people. Most cases and deaths occur in China, especially in Hubei Province, but the global spread of the virus seems inevitable.
