Since the first infection case in February last year, it is the record of the highest daily confirmed cases ever.
It is estimated that students and faculty members gathered from all over the country in dense, close, and confined spaces lived in groups and spread from a large-scale infection.
The quarantine authorities are conducting thorough epidemiological investigations to clarify specific infection routes, while concentrating all administrative power to block the spread of further infections.
◇100 people infected with’TCS International School’… First three digits of confirmed daily
According to the quarantine authorities of Gwangju City on the 26th, 100 people were diagnosed with Corona 19 in a total inspection of 135 students and faculty members of Gwangju TCS International School in Unnam-dong, Gwangsan-gu.
26 were found negative, but the remaining 9 were waiting for the test results.
Gwangju TCS International School is an unauthorized educational facility operated by IM Mission to train missionaries. From the 18th of this month, it was tentatively identified that 122 students and faculty members from all over the country received training in camp. Of these, 66 people lived in other regions.
Earlier, the city’s quarantine authorities conducted a full-scale inspection on unauthorized dormitory-type educational facilities on the occasion of the occurrence of 37 confirmed cases since the 23rd at the Buk-gu Ace TCS International School operated by the’Korea’s Next Generation Movement Headquarters’ (IM Mission). I figured out the facts.
As of 11 p.m. that day, there were 110 daily confirmed cases in Gwangju. Originally, the record of the most confirmed cases per day was 74 on January 3rd (related to Hyojeong Nursing Hospital). It is the first time in Gwangju that the number of confirmed cases per day has exceeded three digits.

The background of the infection is’dense, close, and closed environment’ and’the blind spot of management and supervision’.
The quarantine authorities believe that infection has continued after students and faculty members have shared their life (room and board, classes, worship, etc.) from the 18th in a dense, closed, confined space.
Those who were tested positive used a three-story building around the international school and a building in another building as a dormitory, and it is known that 4 to 7 people lived in each room.
Defense experts have warned that the environment in which a person infected with Corona 19 is in close contact with other people in a confined space is the best condition for the spread of the virus.
Most of the confirmed cases are minors, and the possibility of inadequate wearing of masks, no partitions installed, poor initial response, and asymptomatic infection cannot be excluded.
Some analyzes say that because it is an unauthorized facility, it has not been managed and supervised by the education and quarantine authorities, and thus it has not been able to prevent one after another infection.

Facilities related to IM mission identified by the city’s quarantine authorities are ▲ Ace TCS International School (Buk-gu Bitnaeri Church) ▲ Gwangju TCS International School (Gwangsan-gu Hanmaeum Church) ▲ Tikhun TCS International School (Nam-gu Gwangmyeong Seohyeon Church) ▲ Antioch Trinity CAS (Seogu Antioch Church) And 4 places.
If there are frequent exchanges between related educational facilities in the region, the city’s quarantine authorities believe that the spread of infection will be out of control.
In particular, IM Mission is also operating IEM International School, which is regarded as a hotbed for group infections in Daejeon. The number of confirmed cases of infection with this school is up to 130 people from all over the country, including Daejeon, Suncheon, and Pohang.
Group infections are also occurring in other IM mission-related educational facilities such as Gyeonggi and Chungnam.
The city’s quarantine authorities are focusing on the fact that simultaneous group infections are occurring in IM mission-related educational facilities.
It focuses on identifying specific infections, opening up various possibilities such as exchanges between regions including Daejeon and Gwangju and spreading through other religious gatherings.
In addition, a detailed epidemiological investigation will be conducted to confirm the movement lines and contacts of the confirmed persons in the area, and a dense quarantine network will be established.
From the 27th, a risk assessment for the facility will be conducted. In the event of violations of the quarantine regulations, a prosecution will be taken.
Gwangju Mayor Yong-seop Lee said, “Citizens who visited churches or educational facilities related to IM Mission during this month should immediately undergo a corona19 diagnosis test.”
Meanwhile, the cumulative number of corona19 patients in Gwangju is 1633. Of these, 1526, or 93.45%, are estimated to be local infections.
