Health authorities from South Korea reported on a 1500 hrs  Bangkok time (Thursday, Feb 20) the first death in the country of a person infected with coronavirus and 22 new cases in the last hour bringing the total to 104.



Majority of the new cases of confirmed coronavirus infections are in Daegu followed by the  province of  North Gyeongsang and also Seoul.

The South Korean government reported that a 63-year-old man, who died tested positive for the coronavirus in a post-mortem examination. He died at Chungdo Daenam Hospital in North Gyeongsang province.

Vice Health and Welfare Minister Kim Kang-lip said the country is confronting a new situation that requires a different response.

Mr Kim told Thailand Medical News via a phone interview, “At this stage, we think that SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, which has been flowing in from overseas, is spreading locally with a limited scope.”

He added that cases where the route of infection is unclear are emerging in Daegu and the capital Seoul. There are at least 20 cases of coronavirus patients whose transmission path is unknown.

Typically, community transmission refers to a generation of cases with difficulty in grasping the epidemiological link in the community beyond confirmed cases stemming from those who returned from abroad and secondary infections who had contact with people found to have contracted the coronavirus.

The government is has already asked people in Daegu to remain indoors and not to go out and has asked all businesses and schools to close till further notice in what is called an “unofficial lockdown.”

With more cases also materializing in Seoul, the government is also considering similar preventive measures there.
Health authorities also said that there is now about 4,718 cases being investigated and some are already undergoing testing and also being quarantined.

Scenarios similar to Wuhan are also fast materializing like overflowing hospitals, mask and health supplies running out at pharmacies and also supermarkets running low of products as consumers are stockpiling.
