Now the army has been upgraded to the advanced level, and all possible measures are taken to prevent the spread of the new crown pneumonia.
Due to the impact of the epidemic, the joint military exercise between the United States and South Korea was also forced to be postponed. Novel coronavirus was jointly announced by the Joint Chiefs of staff and the Korea US joint command on February 27th, Yonhap reported on February 27th. The decision was postponed by the joint military drill scheduled for early March. It is the first time that South Korea and the United States have postponed the joint military exercise due to the epidemic of infectious diseases. The two sides said that park Hanji, the joint speaker of the two sides, proposed to Robert Abrams, the commander of the South Korean US coalition and the commander of the US military in South Korea, to postpone the joint performance for the sake of the security of the South Korean US soldiers. The two sides made the above decision after consultation. Nevertheless, the two sides will not change their will to develop the ROK-U.S. alliance, and will firmly maintain a stable ROK-U.S. joint defense posture. According to the analysis, the joint exercise in the first half of the year has actually ended in view of the development of the epidemic situation and the future schedule.
