keep saying, but only if you do your daily life while keeping things to keep, you can go to step 1 for a long time.

The number of newly confirmed coronavirus cases is also 73, not decreasing.

Another 32 people were infected at the rehabilitation hospital in Gwangju, Gyeonggi-do, and I am particularly worried about such places as nursing hospitals and rehabilitation hospitals.

Let’s connect the reporters who are on site.

Reporter Ahn Sang-woo, has this hospital been able to figure out how the infection started?


Yes, yesterday (on the 16th), a caregiver was first confirmed here.

The quarantine authorities estimate this caregiver is the first route of infection.

This is because 244 contacts of caregivers were tested yesterday and today and 31 additional people were tested positive. 

Access to the hospital is currently controlled, and all wards with confirmed cases have been cohort quarantined.

Among the confirmed cases, three families in Hongcheon, Gangwon-do, who this caregiver spent time with during the Hangeul Day holiday, were also included.


Rehabilitation hospitals and nursing hospitals are continuing infections, so I need to tighten the reins again.


Yes, the quarantine authorities warned that the coronavirus, which was quietly spreading at today's briefing, could cause an explosion in nursing hospitals and rehabilitation hospitals as their final destination.

Therefore, we repeatedly emphasized compliance with the quarantine regulations, especially for hospital officials.

[Kwon Jun-wook/President of the National Institute of Health: It is essential to wear a mask every time you see a patient, and hand hygiene is necessary whenever you manage one patient and move to the next patient...

.] At

Haetrak Nursing Hospital in Busan, the number of confirmed patients increased by 1, and the cumulative number of patients became 59.

At least 63 people have been infected with Master Plus Hospital in Uijeongbu, Gyeonggi Province.

From next week, the quarantine authorities will conduct a thorough investigation of 160,000 users and workers in nursing hospitals, nursing facilities, and mental hospitals in the metropolitan area.

Until now, I delivered it to Gwangju Rehabilitation Hospital in Gyeonggi-do.
