▲ Korean passengers under investigation by the authorities at the Arrival Hall of Nanjing Airport in China

In Nanjing, China, locals prevented Koreans from returning to their apartments.

According to the Korean Consulate General and its citizens in Shanghai, more than 30 South Koreans who arrived in Nanjing yesterday (27th) from Nanjing moved to apartments in downtown Nanjing, but were blocked in front of the main entrance.

They arrived in Nanjing by Asiana flight OZ349.

After the plane arrived in Nanjing, 34 Chinese passengers were quarantined when a Chinese passenger told them that they had a sore throat.

The rest of the non-isolated Korean passengers were to go to their homes in downtown Nanjing to self-contain for 14 days as instructed by authorities.

However, the apartment resident committee strongly opposes the arrival of Korean residents because of concerns about the spread of Corona19.

Eventually, about 30 Koreans who lived in the apartment waited a long time at the front door before moving to a nearby hotel to spend the night.

Most of them are reported to be affiliated with LG Group affiliates in Nanjing.

Nanjing has an LG Chem battery plant and an LG Display plant.

LG's Chinese clients are reportedly required to send relevant personnel to our company as soon as possible in order to normalize their business in accordance with the Chinese government's guidelines.

Our diplomatic authorities have urged the Nanjing city authorities to immediately address the ban on arbitrary illegal entry by the people, but the local government is said to be lukewarm because of the collective complaints of the residents.
