 Mass infection in South Korean troops stationed in Gyeonggi Province

Novel coronavirus pneumonia was reported in the central Ministry of disease prevention of South Korea. As of 5 hours, 73 cases confirmed new crown pneumonia in the past 24 hours, and 24164 cases were diagnosed.

At a press conference on the same day, Yin Tai Hao, the head of epidemic prevention at the Ministry of accident management of the central government of South Korea, said at a press conference that the number of cases in the capital area, including Seoul, Incheon and Gyeonggi Province, continued to increase, and collective infections in the military and medical institutions continued.

The data showed that 76.5% of the 64 new cases of community infection reported that day occurred in the capital circle. At present, nearly half of the patients in China are concentrated in the capital circle.

Yin Taihao said that with the increase of travel volume during the Mid Autumn Festival holiday, population flow may further trigger the spread of the virus, and with the decrease of temperature, the epidemic situation is still likely to rebound again, so the society needs to keep a high degree of vigilance.

According to the South Korean military, an army unit stationed in Baochuan City, Gyeonggi Province, suffered from collective infection. Three patients were confirmed on the 4th and 36 cases were reported on the 5th. Since the outbreak worsened in August, the South Korean army has been strictly restricting officers and soldiers to go out on leave, and the route of infection is unknown.

According to the South Korean military, it has isolated all the officers and soldiers of the force and asked all troops stationed in Baochuan city to enter a state of emergency. (end)
