The South Korea Coronavirus crisis is fast deteriorating as medical supplies, test kits and basic necessities are running low. In the last 24 hours 256 new confirmed coronavirus cases were reported of which, almost 85% of these from Daegu province and were linked to members of the Christian cult group that triggered the  mass spread. However 12 percent of the new cases were linked to sites that could become locations of mass infections such as military bases, hospitals and factories. To date there are now almost 422, 750 suspected cases of which almost 235,000 are church members from the Cult group, Shincheonji Church of Jesus while another 78,000 are from various military bases.


 
The efforts to locate, track and test all these suspected coronavirus cases all over South Korea is taking toll on authorities while test kits are also  becoming scarce.
 
Meanwhile, it has been revealed that senior members of the Church group are not cooperating fully with health officials and are withholding information, prompting the Mayor of Daegu  to report criminal charges against officials and members of the Shincheonji religious group.
 
Mayor Kwon Young-jin told reporters on Friday that the group failed to include some members on its list submitted to the city and he had reported the group’s Daegu branch officials to police for “hampering the South Korea’s measures to contain the coronavirus.”

Authorities from Daegu discovered that “the group omitted the information of 1,762 Shincheonji trainees” when comparing the list provided by the group to the one separately obtained by the South Korean Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 
 
The church group said that the trainees are not official members.
 
Some of those trainees omitted from the Shincheonji list however have tested positive for the novel coronavirus, according to the Daegu city government.

Kwon added that most of the infected patients in Daegu were from the Shincheonji religious group.

On 28th February morning,  South Korea reported 256 more confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus, bringing the national total to 2,022, according to the South Korean Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC).The death toll remains at 13 but more than 37 patients are in critical conditions.
 
A total of 1,314 cases since the beginning of the outbreak have come from Daegu, according to the KCDC.
 
The coronavirus is widespread over all South Korea with cases in all 9 provinces and all major cities including Seoul.

Medical experts and researchers in South Korea say that by the end of the weekend, at least 0.18 percent of the population of 51.6 million people in South Korea could be confirmed infected with the coronavirus but the backlog at labs and scarcity of test kits is preventing the fact to be easily witnessed and audited.
