There have been a number of developments in recent days.
Earlier in the week the last of Jeju’s first 4 COVID-19 patients were released from hospital after making a full recovery. However, as of Thursday afternoon there are three more COVID-19 patients at Jeju National University Hospital.
All three are young people who traveled or studied in Europe. Read more about the first two travelers to Spain who are Jeju’s 5th and 6th cases.
The 7th Jeju case is a Jeju resident and foreign student in Europe. She returned to Jeju from Europe on March 24 on Asiana Airlines flight OZ 8997 at 10 p.m. She took a taxi home from there and the next morning took another taxi to get tested at the Jeju City Public Health Center.
This brings Jeju’s total to 3 current COVID-19 cases, 7 since the beginning of the pandemic. Some 50 people are under medical observation in hospital while 69 are in self-quarantine at home. There have been no deaths.
