The patient is over 20 years old, working at a government complex in Sejong City, South Korea. This area has about 15,000 working staff.

Yonhap News reported that South Korea had just discovered a Ministry of Health employee working in a government complex in Sejong City (South Korea) that had been positive for Covid-19. Patients are officials about 20 years old. The building where the patient works is a government complex of about 15,000 employees.

This complex was officially put into operation in 2012. The headquarters of South Korea was moved to Sejong to reduce the burden on the capital Seoul from this time.

Female patients were not exposed or working for the Covid-19 outbreak surveillance unit. The department temporarily closed the building in Sejong for disinfection and made a plan to supervise other staff who contacted the patient. Sejong City’s public health agency hypothesized that the 20-year-old girl was infected by the Zumba dance class she took part in February.

The previous dance instructor was also confirmed positive for Covid-19. This person became infected after attending a Zumba workshop in Cheona, South Chungcheong Province, South Korea. The South Korean Ministry of Health and the Sejong Office are still trying to determine the patient’s path of infection.

Deputy Minister of Health Kim Ganglip told ministry reporters to ensure the impact of the incident was minimized on the government. In addition, Mr. Kim said the infection is something that can happen in any organization.

“We shared with the patient that she will see us soon in good health. She doesn’t need to feel guilty, ”Mr. Kim said.

As of March 7, according to the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC), the country has reported 274 new corona virus infections over the past 16 hours, bringing the total number of South Korean infections to 7,041.
