Over 4,000 people traced to warehouse isolated; 80% tested
Around 4,100 workers and visitors to Coupang's warehouse building were under self-isolation, South Korea's Vice Health Minister Kim Gang-lip said according to Agence France-Presse. 80% of them have been tested so far.
He said, "We are expecting the number of new cases linked to the warehouse to continue rising until today as we wrap up related tests."
'Number of people or locations to trace are increasing geometrically'
KCDC Director Jeong Eun-kyeong said, "The number of people or locations we have to trace are increasing geometrically."
She added, "We will do our best to trace contacts and implement preventive measures, but there's a limit to such efforts. There's a need to maximize social distancing in areas where the virus is circulating, to force people to avoid public facilities and other crowded spaces."
