광주서 첫 코로나19 전담 의료진 감염…후속 대처 도마

Gwangju City with first COVID19 designated medical staff infected


Gwangju City had 2 medical staff working at the Infectious Disease Designated Hospital confirmed to be infected.


This is the first time that medical staff designated to be working with COVID19 have been infected within Gwangju City. However, the health authorities' after-care is in controversy.


This is as the local 1,416th patient confirmed on Jan. 15th was a nurse-assistant working at the Bitgoeul(빛고을) Chonnam University Hospital within the 61st ward.


On the 26th of the same month, another nurse colleague was confirmed to be infected as the local 1,529th patient.


The health authorities conducted an enumeration test upon 360 medical staff within the hospital, but no more infection cases were found.


However, there are critics saying that such transmission within the hospital was not shared with other medical institutions to establish countermeasures.


Across the country, there are so far 26 cases of medical staff confirmed to be infected who were designated to care for COVID19 patients.
