      S. Korea reports 2nd virus death as number of infections nearly doubles

      febr 21 2020




      SEOUL, Feb. 21 (Yonhap) -- South Korea reported the second death of a coronavirus patient on Friday as infections almost quadrupled in just three days, prompting the health authorities to declare that the outbreak is in the initial stage of community spread, albeit still "manageable."

      The country reported 100 new cases of the novel coronavirus as of 4 p.m. on Friday, bringing the total number to 204, the Korea Center for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC) said.

      But a few more virus cases, not officially counted by the health authorities, were also reported in many cities.

      A woman in her mid-50s, who was confirmed to be infected with the virus, died at a hospital in the southeastern city of Busan at around 6 p.m., hospital officials said.

      She had been bedridden with chronic pneumonia at Daenam Hospital in Cheongdo County and was transferred to Busan National University Hospital after she tested positive for the virus earlier Friday.

          Health Alert: Increase of COVID-19 Cases in the Republic of Korea (ROK) As of 5:00pm on February 21, the Korea Center for Disease Control has confirmed 204 positive cases of COVID-19 in the Republic of Korea, including one death. This is a substantial increase over the past 48 hours largely due to a cluster of cases identified in the city of Daegu, which is located 148 miles south east of Seoul. Authorities have confirmed that community-based transmission is occurring in Korea. The U.S. Embassy in Seoul continues to closely monitor developments related to COVID-19 in the ROK.

          The Department of State also advises U.S. citizens to reconsider travel by cruise ship to or within East Asia and the Asia-Pacific Region. U.S. citizens planning to travel by cruise ship should be aware that, due to the current public health situation, many countries have implemented strict screening procedures in order to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus that causesCOVID-19. This is a dynamic situation and U.S. citizens traveling by ship may be impacted by travel restrictions affecting their itineraries or ability to disembark, or may be subject to quarantine procedures implemented by the host country authorities.

          Before you travel to the ROK, visit the Korea Immigration Service website for the latest information on ROK entry restrictions. The Korean government also posts daily updates on the response to COVID-19 at the website of the Ministry of Health and Welfare (in Korean only).

          If you are currently in the Korea and believe that you may have symptoms of COVID-19, please call the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC) treatment hotline at 1339 or 1345 (English) to be directed to an appropriate facility.

          Actions to Take:
          • Consult the CDC website, for the most up-to-date health information.
          • Check with the airlines regarding any flight cancellations and/or restrictions on flying. Be aware that airline schedules are changing rapidly.
          • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
          • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
          • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
          • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when coughing or sneezing.
          • Seek medical care right away if you feel sick or were exposed to someone who has a fever, cough, or difficulty breathing. In Korea, call 1345 to seek appropriate medical care for your situation.

          Assistance:
          • Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC) treatment hotline at 1339 or 1345 (English).
          • Online resources:WHO , CDC, and KCDC.

                    Report: South Korea has increased high-temperature days since 2010
                    Third death from infection with new coronavirus in South Korea
                    Scroll February 22, 2020 21:58

                    Yonhap News Agency, Gyeongju, Seoul, February 22-South Korea's Central Epidemic Prevention Policy Headquarters said on the 22nd that a 40-year-old male in Gyeongju, Gyeongsangbuk-do was diagnosed with the new coronavirus (COVID-19) after his death. This man is the third death in South Korea infected with the new crown virus.

                    According to the Gyeongju City Government and the Gyeongju Police Department, at 9 pm on the 21st, the male friend reported that he had died at home and called the police. According to statements from surrounding personnel, the man had cough and bronchitis symptoms during his lifetime and was treated for it. The police commissioned a health department to test for the new coronavirus to confirm the cause of death. Since the man is dead, it is difficult to find out the route of infection and the movement route after infection.

                    The first death from a new coronavirus infection in South Korea was a 63-year-old male who died of pneumonia in the early morning of the 19th and was diagnosed with the new coronavirus after his death. The second death was a 55-year-old woman who died after being transferred from Danang Hospital, Cheongdo-gun, Gyeongsangbuk-do to Busan University Hospital. (Finish)

                          • Travel Advisory
                            South Korea – Level 2: Exercise Increased Caution


                            Exercise Increased Caution due to an outbreak of COVID-19 (also known as the disease caused by SARS-CoV-2).

                            A novel (new) coronavirus disease, recently designated as COVID-19, is causing an outbreak of respiratory illness. The first cases of COVID-19 were reported in China in December 2019. On January 30, 2020, the World Health Organization determined the rapidly spreading outbreak constitutes a Public Health Emergency of International Concern.

                            Many cases of COVID-19 have been associated with travel to or from mainland China or close contact with a travel-related case, but sustained community spread has been reported in South Korea. Sustained community spread means that people in South Korea have been infected with the virus, but how or where they became infected is not known, and the spread is ongoing. The CDC has issued a Level 2 Travel Health Notice.

                            Because older adults and those with chronic medical conditions may be at higher risk for severe disease, people in these groups should discuss travel with a healthcare provider and consider postponing nonessential travel.

                            Travelers should review and follow the Centers for Disease Control’s guidelines for the prevention of coronavirus if they decide to travel to South Korea. If suspected to have Coronavirus in South Korea, you may face travel delays, quarantine, and extremely expensive medical costs.

                            If you travel to South Korea, you should:
                            • Avoid contact with sick people.
                            • Discuss travel to South Korea with your healthcare provider. Older adults and travelers with underlying health issues may be at risk for more severe disease.
                            • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands
                            • Clean your hands often by washing them with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at 60%–95% alcohol. Soap and water should be used if hands are visibly dirty.
                            • Enroll in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) to receive Alerts and make it easier to locate you in an emergency.
                            • Follow the Department of State on Facebook and Twitter.
                            • Review the Crime and Safety Report for South Korea.
                            • Prepare a contingency plan for emergency situations. Review the Traveler’s Checklist

                            See https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/novel-coronavirus-2019.html for additional guidance.

                                South Korea’s president said he was putting the country on “red alert” due to the rapid rise in new cases, which are largely being traced back to church services. Health officials reported 169 new infections, bringing the total to 602, having doubled from Friday to Saturday.
