As of noon Sunday, in Seoul, the total number of Coronavirus cases which have been linked to Itaewon in Seoul, which had been visited by a 29-year-old Coronavirus disease patient earlier on in the month, has increased to 54 .
South Korean authorities estimate that between April 29 and May 6, 2020 – 6,000 to 7,000 people could have been infected to the Coronavirus, from clubs.
Korea Centers for Disease Control & Prevention’s Director-General Jung Eun-kyeong, said:
“Healthy teenagers and adults normally fully recover without showing much symptoms, but to senior citizens and those with underlying diseases, it can be fatal. We’d like to remind everyone to think of the impact this can have on the people with weaker immune systems.”
Moon Jae-in, South Korean President said:
“We are in a prolonged war. I ask everyone to comply with safety precautions and rules until the situation is over even after resuming daily lives.”
