Gwangju City confirms 16th proven case of the new coronavirus

광주서도 신종 코로나 확진자 발생

Gwangju city hall and the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said on Tuesday that they have confirmed the 16th coronavirus patient. The new patient is a 42-year-old Gwangju resident, who arrived in the nation on Jan. 19 after traveling to Thailand.

Jongmin Kim reports

Gwangju City and the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC) said the patient, a 42-year-old woman, had returned from a trip to Thailand on Jan. 19 and started feeling chills on Jan. 25. Her condition has not improved despite receiving treatment, so she was tested for the viral infection on Monday with the test results coming up positive.

The KCDC said that she has been placed in quarantine with efforts underway to find out where she has been and whom she met, to see if they too have symptoms.

At this point, no details about the patient have been revealed just yet, but the KCDC says it will share the information on Wednesday briefing tomorrow.

Meanwhile, Gwangju City Mayor Lee Yong-Sub immediately released a statement and said that an emergency team is currently carrying out investigations on the patient and disinfection measures on the locations she has been to, and with close cooperation and coordination with the KCDC, Gwangju will make all-out efforts to prevent the spread of infectious diseases.

Mayor Lee stressed citizens should follow strict personal hygiene rules whether they are in the country or traveling abroad. In addition, people should avoid contact with contagious people by avoiding crowds, wearing masks, and washing their hands frequently.
