scheduled for today (21st), the secondary school teacher appointment test was held all over the country.

Yesterday, at the Noryangjin Appointment Examination Academy, a lot of physical education candidates were confirmed, and a petition from the Blue House saying that the exam should be postponed appeared, but 52,000 candidates took the exam as scheduled.
However, 66 of the 69 cumulative confirmed cases related to Noryangjin Academy did not take the test according to the policy of the Ministry of Education.
The 142 people classified as close contacts and 395 people who were notified as corona test subjects were tested in separate test sites, separated from general candidates.

Reporter Jung Joon-ho, who went directly to the appointment examination site, is here.
Didn't you go inside the test center to report?
Yes, we did not go inside the test site, but we covered safely near the main gate.
How did the test takers look?
<Reporter> It is
probably the most tense day of the year, and there was a tense light from the sudden corona.
In addition, he expressed his regret for the candidates who were not able to take the test because they were confirmed coronavirus.
[Kwon Jae-yong/Physical education subject appointment test candidate: I am a little bit anxious.
There is also an anxiety that there will be someone at the exam room I see...
(Confirmed) It's a lot of regret.
I can feel the fellowship we've been studying hard together.]
fact, it's a bit harsh to tell me not to take the exam because of a few symptoms
I also have this concern, how is it?
Yes, the candidates of the academy where the group infection occurred took the test at a separate test center.
Still, there are areas of concern.
Experts say that there may be hidden infections that have not been confirmed by the corona test.
[Kim Woo-joo/Professor of Infectious Diseases at Korea University Guro Hospital: Seeing that 30 or 60 people come out within a day or two, the number of confirmed cases in them has increased like this from at least a week ago...
Young people are dangerous, but of course, the symptoms are not severe, so they may have endured and studied for the test, and they have an important test ahead.]
Some of the test takers who took the test at a separate test center have not yet come out with test results.
Therefore, the number of confirmed cases may increase depending on the test result.
