Following the metropolitan area, Daegu and Gyeongbuk, we will look into Busan and Gyeongnam. When the social worker who worked at a nursing hospital in Busan was confirmed, the hospital was totally quarantined. There was one such hospital in Changwon, Gyeongnam. KNN standard reporter is connected.
Mr. Mark, first of all, did you test the patients and staff at the entire quarantined Busan Nursing Hospital?
Yes, I am now in front of Asiad Nursing Hospital.
A total of 304 people were referred to the test, 296 of whom were negative and seven were still under test.
The likelihood of outbreaks has diminished, but I'm worried that the only positive person was a caregiver who worked in an intensive care unit.
The caregiver is mostly incapable of moving, and health officials are still on the verge of tension.
As mentioned earlier, a whole hospital was isolated in Changwon, Gyeongnam, where the nurse in the nursery was confirmed.
Yes, an additional nurse was confirmed today at Haneum Changwon Hospital where two medical staff confirmed.
It was temporarily closed on the 22nd and was reopened yesterday.
The new additional confirmed nurse was a nurse in the nursery and was already quarantined as a contact with a confirmed medical staff.
The hospital has more than 100 inpatients, carers, and medical staff. Health authorities have reported that there is a risk of spreading infections, and have taken a cohort quarantine to block the entire hospital.
The hospital will have full outside access for up to two weeks, and staff from the Ministry of Health and Welfare will be there to assist with site management.
