South Korea coronavirus outbreak is getting more worrisome as the number of cases is increasing by the hour.


 
Health authorities from South Korea reported an hour ago that there are 87 new confirmed coronavirus cases in the last few hours with thousands more being tested and awaiting results.
 
The total number of confirmed coronavirus infected cases in South Korea is now 433 with 2 deaths so far. There are 9 patients in critical condition.
 
The number of people being checked for the coronavirus and under quarantine came to 5,481, up from 3,180 a day earlier, the KCDC said. The country has tested a total of 19,621 suspected cases, with 13,794 testing negative.
 
However there are still more than 48,120 suspected individuals that need to be tested and checked for the coronavirus all over South Korea.
 
Most of the new cases are from a cluster outbreak at a hospital and were “related” to patients or staff at Cheongdo Daenam Hospital, the Korea Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC) said.  
 
Most coronavirus-infected patients are stable, but about nine patients with underlying illnesses are in relatively critical conditions, the health authorities said.
 
Meanwhile, thousands more are awaiting their test results from the testing lab at Daegu where more than 592 worshippers out of more than 4,500 members of a church congregation have complained of symptoms.
 
Also there is now news emerging that there might be mass infections in one of the army bases in the Southern islands of Jeju.
 
In a central disaster headquarters meeting, Prime Minister Chung Sye-kyun said Daegu and Cheongdo would be designated special control areas that would receive central government support in the form of medical resources and personnel.
 
However new reports are emerging that he might be shortly raising South Korea’s health alert level to red as more coronavirus cases are also emerging from other areas of South Korea.
 
According to the government’s standard response protocol for disasters, a limited spread of a foreign-born infectious disease mandates an alert level of “orange,” while a wider spread across an entire region or nationally warrants the alert be raised to “red,” the highest level. On Jan. 20, when South Korea confirmed its first quot;>coronavirus patient, the alert level was raised from “yellow” to “orange.”
