14 Infections Reported in Gwangju  yesterday showing various infection routes


There were 14 patients with Covid 19 found in Gwangju City yesterday. These include 'Nth degree' transmission cases related to a middle school and to Chonnam(전남) University Hospital. Our Jongmin Kim reports.

Korea saw an upward trend in daily Covid-19 cases again. It marked the first time that the country's daily virus cases exceeded 500 since March 6, when the figure reached 518 due to a massive outbreak in the city of Daegu.

According to Gwangju Metropolitan City, the number of confirmed cases in the region has increased to 646. 14 people were confirmed on the 25th alone. Among the 14 confirmed cases, 4 were related to CNU Hospital, three infection cases of middle school students and their family members in Seogu were reported, three with contact from other regions, and 3 related to a pub in Jinwol-dong. Among them, there were a nurse at CNU Hospital and four inmates, and there are also confirmed cases where the infection route is still under investigation. Also, regarding the student infections, the disinfection authorities installed a screening clinic within the school. Afterward, some 400 students and faculty staff will undergo diagnostic tests.

However, the Gwangju Office of Education revealed on Nov. 25th that online classes will be operated for all middle and high school students within the city for Dec. 4th.

This is the day after the College Scholastic Ability Test, the CSAT or College Entrance Exam. As there will be a huge number of students writing the CSAT with many others visiting the exam sites, the preventative measures are necessary.

Also, 31% of middle school teachers and 58% of high school teachers will be participating as exam supervisors. Therefore, the possibilities for cluster infections are stronger. Therefore, on Dec. 4th, all faculty staff except necessary staff will be working from home.
