Let's start news at 8:00. First of all, let's talk about Corona19 patients that have been confirmed so far. As of today (26th), 284 more patients were confirmed for confirmation, increasing the number of domestic patients to 1,261. There are 12 people dead, one more.

First, reporter Nam Joo-hyun will summarize what came out today.


Health officials say 169 am and 115 pm were confirmed today, with 1,261 confirmed.

The daily increase is the maximum.

710 confirmed patients in Daegu and 317 in Gyeongbuk, accounting for 81% of the total.

The number of patients in Seoul and Gyeonggi-do is steadily increasing to 49 and 51, respectively.

[Eun-Kyung Chung / Director of Disease Control Division: Other attempts have also made small-scale outbreaks of Shinchon Daegu Church members or through contacts, families, and acquaintances with them.]

The 47-year-old male and 61-year-old female who were confirmed in Daegu on September 19 and treated at Kyungpook National University Hospital and Keimyung University Dongsan Hospital were discharged.

Confirmation only seven days.

The total number of discharged patients is 24, which is very small compared to the confirmed patients.

The death toll is one more, up to twelve.

A 74-year-old man who was a member of the Daegu Church of Sincheonji, died of intensive care because he had an underlying disease and his pneumonia worsened.

All 147 Chinese citizens in Wuhan, who are in quarantine in Icheon, Gyeonggi-do, returned to Korea on board the third charter, all of which were negative.

They are likely to be quarantined tonight and leave tomorrow.
