South Korea reports second coronavirus death + 142 more new cases, bringing total to 346


South Korea reported its second death on Saturday (Feb 22) from the novel coronavirus as the number of new cases rose by 142, bringing the nationwide total to 346. This is the highest number of people infected outside of China.

Among the latest cases, 92 were connected to a hospital in Cheongdo. More than 150 members of a church in Shincheon-ji have now been infected, starting with a 61-year-old woman who developed a fever on Feb 10 but attended at least four church services in Daegu before being diagnosed. 

The first patient who died from the coronavirus in Korea was a long-term patient at a hospital in Cheongdo county. He had shown symptoms of pneumonia, and his status was only established posthumously.

This might be overkill but I think all kpop concerts should be cancelled. Having thousands of people huddled together in a closed environment would not be a good thing while this virus is still active. As a matter of fact, it might be wise to do the same wherever this virus has been found.

I hope this does not get worse. Not only should idols remain safe and healthy but all of South Korea. There is still a long way until a vaccine but hopefully this won’t become any bigger. This will be a hard hit for the kpop industry as well as a lot of other industries in South Korea
