There are many corona confirmed cases centering on unauthorized boarding schools run by a missions organization in Daejeon.
An additional 39 people were confirmed overnight, and the number of confirmed cases increased to 171 in total.
Reporter Jung Joon-ho reports.
<Reporter> On the
night of the 25th, the quarantine authorities announced that 39 additional confirmed persons related to IEM at an unauthorized boarding school operated by a missionary in Daejeon were added.
A total of 39 students, including 37 students of this school and the pastor's couple who led them, were confirmed in Hongcheon, Gangwon-do.
They were found to have visited a religious facility in Hongcheon on the 16th.
Previously, 132 out of 158 students, including students and faculty members, were confirmed at this school.
As the spread of more than 30 confirmed cases in both Yongin, Gyeonggi-do and another international school in Gwangju Metropolitan City, which this mission is operated by, has become serious, the quarantine authorities sent an emergency disaster message last night urging visitors to the mission and international schools to be examined. .
At IEM International School in Daejeon, students from 16 to 18 years old, from all over the country, have lived in dormitories since the 4th, but it was confirmed that the quarantine regulations were not well observed.
I lived up to 20 people in one room, and shared a shower and toilet.
There is only one restaurant with a table and no partitions.
The school's response was also easy.
On the 12th, after a student first showed cough and headache symptoms, the number of symptoms increased to 6, but there were no tests or hospital treatments.
I just separated the quarters and made me get mixed up with other students for over ten days.
The quarantine authorities are closing boarding schools for three weeks and investigating the possibility of further transmission.
