The number of Korean patients in Corona19 increased 39 people a day yesterday (8 days). In connection with the fact that a person who works at a nightlife in Gangnam, Seoul, has been confirmed, the inspection of 116 contacts has been completed. So far, 92 people have been judged negative, but more than 20 have not yet been tested or are waiting for the results, so it is safe to say. Gangnam-gu accused an employee who failed to properly state the movement even after being confirmed. In the midst of this, there is a growing concern that pubs can become a new source of infectious disease in Seoul, Seorae Village and Itaewon pubs.

Reporter Jo Yoon-ha reports.


This is a cocktail bar in Seorae Village, Banpo-dong, Seoul.

The owner, spouse, and employees of the establishment, as well as the visitors and acquaintances who visited the establishment, were confirmed by Corona19 for two days.

A man in his 40s, a business owner, was confirmed yesterday after the first symptoms appeared on the 30th of last month, followed by Mr. A's gynecological employee and others.

Airline flight attendant Mrs. A has been to the United States from the 18th to the 21st of last month, and health officials are conducting an epidemiologic investigation after reporting that Mrs. A may have been infected in the United States for the first time.

It was confirmed that the employee who received the confirmation decision visited the PC room in Dongjak-gu, Seoul five times after symptoms began on the 1st.

In addition, a man in his 20s who visited the establishment on the 3rd and 4th showed symptoms on the 5th, and the next day, he took a lecture at the Noryangjin Civil Service Exam Preparation School.

The quarantine authorities are conducting inspections on 260 people, including cocktail bar users, contacts with Noryangjin Academy, and PC room users.

[Attorney of Seocho-gu Office: We have conducted a thorough investigation after confirmers have occurred and have not been operating until now.] In the Itaewon tavern, 28 people were isolated from the contacts as one employee in their 20s was confirmed, but there is growing concern that small taverns can become new radio sources.
