On the 20th of last month, all the patients who came out in the country for 10 days after the first infected person came to China. Then, among the people who went to other countries like Singapore and Japan, patients started coming out on the first day of this month. Then, the first person discharged, the patient was a little bit depressed, and there was a warning that Corona 19 was in a lull. Let's listen together.

[President Moon Jae-in (Last 13th Economic Conference): Corona 19 will end soon.]

[Eung-Kyung Chung / Head of Disease Control Division (Last 13th): It's not yet a lull, and it's not a time to judge that. ]

The situation changed when a patient came out who did not know where he was infected. Since last week, the number of patients in Daegu Sincheon-ji Church and Gyeongbuk-Qingdao Daenam Hospital has increased dramatically. Today, the total number of patients surpassed 1,200. About 80% of all patients are coming from Daegu and Gyeongbuk, but the opinions are still mixed over whether or not it can be seen as spreading throughout the country.

So far, I have looked into the situation since the first patient came out last month, and if so, the government's countermeasures would have been appropriate.


In early February, the United States, Australia and Singapore banned entry to China and Japan and Korea to Hubei, where Wuhan belongs.

There were different judgments about whether Corona 19 was a problem in all of China or in Hubei Province.

The opinions of the World Health Organization, US health authorities, and the domestic medical community were mixed.

However, the law of infectious diseases that excessive response is gentle when uncertain is no exception.

So far, the United States, Australia, Singapore and Contrast, which have fewer than 100 patients, are clearly changing.

When the patient did not occur five days, the hasty expression of 'slump' and 'end of time' was medically unreasonable.

In Japan, Singapore, and Thailand, where there are many exchanges, the number of patients continues to increase, and considering the latent period of the virus, the incidence of patients may decrease temporarily during the first epidemic.

At this point, the atmosphere of using multiple facilities without a mask or encouraging attendance seems to be the most painful mistake of the incident.

The biggest enemy of infectious disease is optimism.

The health authority's current judgment on the proliferation of the Daegu-Gyeongbuk region only needs to be reviewed with more stringent circumstances.
