It was confirmed that some of 40 people, including trainees and officials at Daejeon IEM International School, who were diagnosed with Corona 19 in Hongcheon, Gangwon, had only eaten antipyretic drugs and were not tested even though they had symptoms of suspicion.

They stayed in Hongcheon for as many as 10 days from the 16th to the 25th, and they are believed to have used more than 30 stores, so they are concerned about a chain infection in the region.

According to Hongcheon-gun, one or two of the confirmed patients who had stayed at Hongcheon Onnuri Church from the 16th showed fever symptoms, but they only bought antipyretic drugs at the pharmacy.

Gunsu Pil-hong Heo pointed out the fact that he took only antipyretic drugs as a regret, and said, "If I had a single test when I had a fever, I wonder if it would have been corrected at some early stage. It is a pity for Pastor Insol's judgment."

The reason for their visit to Hongcheon was also found to have reached Hongcheon while searching for another training space in terms of separation after the first symptoms appeared at IEM International School in Daejeon on the 12th.

Gunsu Heo explained, "Because of the occurrence of confirmed cases in the existing (Daejeon) IEM program operating space, it is understood that while we were looking for other areas to avoid this, we communicated with a pastor we knew in Hongcheon to borrow a church."

The Onnuri Church they borrowed is located in the outskirts of the city center, but the confirmed cases were found to have used cafes, restaurants, pharmacies, and launderettes.

The church, which stayed for ten days, is a two-story religious facility with accommodation on the first floor and a chapel on the second floor.

The confirmed patients lived on the first floor in a space consisting of 6 rooms and 2 bathrooms, and it was confirmed that they did not eat outside, but with food prepared by the insol pastor's couple.

The health authorities believe that they lived in a group life under so-called three-containment conditions, such as'closed, closed, and intimate' as in the case of group infection at IEM International School in Daejeon.

Accordingly, the military will investigate whether the distancing has been implemented and the mandatory quarantine guidelines for gatherings, meetings, and events, and in the event of violations, the military will impose fines according to the infectious disease prevention method, or take measures such as an order to suspend operation, and a claim for damages.
