                  16th coronavirus patient not flagged for 10 days despite symptoms

                  By Kim So-hyunPublished : Feb 5, 2020 - 14:14 Updated : Feb 5, 2020 - 17:44

                  Concerns about the new coronavirus are growing as news emerged that the 42-year-old South Korean woman at the center of Korea’s 16th confirmed case was not flagged as a possible carrier for a full 10 days, despite having symptoms after a trip to Thailand.
                  ...
                  This is because health authorities have limited the information provided to medical institutions for the purpose of controlling the spread of the new coronavirus, disclosing only records concerning patients’ visits to China.

                  The 16th patient began to show symptoms such as fever and chills on Jan. 25 after returning from Thailand on Jan. 19.
                  ...
                  According to the university hospital staff, they asked the local health center whether she should be tested for the new coronavirus, and was told it was unnecessary since she hadn’t visited China.
                  ...
                  However, when her condition did not improve, she was hospitalized at the Gwangju 21st Century Hospital for seven days beginning Jan. 28.

                  On Feb. 3, her shortness of breath and pneumonia symptoms worsened, and she was moved to the emergency room at Chonnam National University Hospital and placed under quarantine.

                  Her coronavirus-positive status was confirmed the next day.

                  The fact that the 16th patient was hospitalized for a week also raises concerns about the possibility that some patients may be able to transmit the disease much more readily than others, and to many more people.
                  ...
                  In light of these concerns, the Gwangju 21st Century Hospital has temporarily closed and its inpatients are in isolation.
