Visited hospital of the new coronavirus confirmed patient to close temporarily with medical staff and patients to be cohort isolated



In the midst of 18th confirmed case of the new coronavirus across the nation, the 21st Century Hospital located in Gwangsangu(광산구) district of Gwangju, which was the first hospital visited by the 16th confirmed patient of the new coronavirus after showing symptoms, has temporarily closed.


The health authorities have quarantined medical staff and patients from outside in the form of cohort isolation to prevent the spread, which is the first time for this method since the eruption of the new coronavirus.


According to Gwangju city yesterday, the 16th confirmed case visited this hospital on the 27th of last month showing symptoms of fever and chills, and was then transferred to Jeonnam University Hospital.


However, as the patient was only prescribed medication for their chronic pneumonia, when the symptoms continued they visited the 21st Century Hospital for 7 days of admission, after which symptoms worsened and the hospital transferred to the Jeonnam University Hospital Emergency Center once again and was confirmed of the coronavirus infection.
