Coronavirus: South Korea confirms huge rise in cases


In a statement, the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC) said that of the 229 new cases, 95 were related to Daenam Hospital in Cheongdo, which treats the elderly and people with mental health issues. There are now 114 confirmed cases at the hospital – nine staff and 102 patients – it added.

He said most of those diagnosed at the hospital had been inpatients for mental illnesses. Some cases showed „no confirmed epidemiological connections“, meaning it was not clear how they had contracted the virus, he added.
