Group infections centered on multi-use facilities continue.
In particular, I am worried that the scale of infection will not increase as new cases emerge one after another in a market that is expected to attract a large number of people ahead of Chuseok.
The quarantine authorities decided to implement special quarantine measures for Chuseok to prevent the spread of infection.
A reporter is on the scene. Reporter Da-yeon Kim!
Yes, it is in front of the fish market in Dongdaemun-gu, Seoul.
Did a cluster infection occur there too? How is the field situation?
The confirmed case was at the fish market, but there is also a fruit and vegetable market right across from it, so I am worried that the scale of the infection will increase.
The ward office staff visited the market this morning and conducted a preliminary survey to set up a screening clinic.
Merchants were instructed to get tested every two days, and market visitors were sent a disaster message asking them to be tested for COVID-19.
Since one worker was first confirmed on the 30th of last month, the number of related infections has risen to 31.
This is a higher number than the data released by the Seoul Metropolitan Government as of 0:00 this morning.
Previously, a group infection occurred at the Noryangjin Fish Market in Seoul.
Since one worker was confirmed on the 3rd of last month, there have been close to 100 confirmed cases so far.
A lot of people are looking for markets or marts ahead of the Chuseok holiday.
The quarantine authorities have come up with special measures to prevent further spread.
First of all, we decided to recommend management of the visitor list, such as a ‘safe call’ that authenticates by phone, along with special inspections for traditional markets.
In addition, more than 350 traditional markets nationwide hold online special sales exhibitions to promote non-face-to-face sales.
In the case of department stores and marts, from the 3rd stage, it was recommended to manage the visitor list for semi-large stores of 300 square meters or more, and prevented events or tastings.
Infections are coming out not only in the market but also in other multi-use facilities, please summarize the infection situation in the metropolitan area.
Infection cases continue to appear in schools, hospitals, and workplaces.
In Gangnam-gu, the infection started at a high school and spread to a private academy, bringing the number of related confirmed cases to 14.
In the same local hospital, 4 people were infected in a single day, and the cumulative number of confirmed cases is 14.
A hospital infection was also reported in Bucheon, Gyeonggi-do, and 22 additional cases were confirmed after the first case of infection on the 24th of last month.
There are also rectal infections.
At the workplace in Yangcheon-gu, Seoul, an employee was first confirmed on the 28th of last month, and since then, the cumulative number of confirmed cases has risen to 75.
At a machine manufacturer in Yangju, Gyeonggi-do, 18 additional confirmed cases were confirmed in a single day, and a new case of infection was also reported at the logistics center in Goyang, resulting in 12 related confirmed cases.
Looking at the route of infection for the past two weeks, 35.6% of the respondents did not know when and where they were infected.
The weather is getting cooler and the holidays are approaching, so the quarantine tension can ease.
As the spread of the 4th epidemic has not yet stopped, strict adherence to quarantine rules is of utmost importance.
Until now, this is YTN Kim Da-yeon in front of the fish market in Dongdaemun-gu, Seoul.
