On the 21st, it was confirmed that one of the candidates for the new middle and high school teacher appointment exams held across the country was infected with Corona 19.

Accordingly, the quarantine authorities have conducted a contact investigation on the examinees who took the test together at the same test site as the confirmed person, and said that there were no additional confirmed cases yet.

Jung Eun-kyung, head of the Central Defense Countermeasure Headquarters (Bang Dae-bon), delivered the same message at a regular briefing today (23rd), saying, "Investigation and management of contacts are ongoing and monitoring of people who took the test at the same test site.

The new middle and high school teacher appointment test was held on the 21st for 6,233 students in 3,76 test labs (standard test center and test lab) in 110 test centers nationwide.

Ahead of the exam, a bunch of corona19 confirmed cases came out at a large appointment examination academy in Noryangjin, Dongjak-gu, Seoul.

The 67 confirmed cases of infection were found before the test, but did not take the secondary school teacher appointment test as previously notified.

As of 12 p.m., the number of confirmed cases related to the short-term academy for the appointment of Noryangjin teachers has increased by 5 to 81.

The quarantine authorities have confirmed that it is impossible to provide test opportunities to corona19 confirmed patients except for the college entrance exam on the 3rd of next month.

"Under the government policy that both confirmed and self-contained students should be given an opportunity to test for the SAT, we are preparing for the separate test of the confirmed and self-contained students." "It is difficult to provide test opportunities to confirmed patients for other tests."

He added, "After the SAT, we believe that many people will be able to gather in the essay test, etc.," he added.
