While Jeju Island has recorded no COVID-19 cases thus far, the Republic of Korea marked its third consecutive day on Friday without a new case of the virus.
To protect residents and visitors to the island, Jeju Special Self-Governing Province suspended its visa-free status for 62 countries (click here for the list) on Feb. 4 and this number has not changed as of Feb. 14.
A total of 28 COVID-19 cases have been recorded on the mainland since the initial outbreak in Wuhan, China. Some 21 patients are in stable condition in hospital and seven have now made full recoveries.
Health officials nationwide are remaining closely monitoring the situation in neighboring countries, however, as this is an ongoing crisis. According to the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as of Friday morning some 6,134 people tested negative for the virus. Another 692 are undergoing tests and being monitored.
Extra screening procedures for travelers from Hong Kong, Macau and mainland China are in effect at Korean ports of entry.
