[아시아경제 나예은 기자] A Chinese man in his 60s hid his corona19 confirmation and got a job at a nursing hospital in Namyangju, where 52 people were infected.

According to the Yeongdeungpo Public Health Center in Seoul and the Pungyang Public Health Center in Namyangju, at a nursing hospital in Jinjeop-eup, Namyangju, from the 11th to the 13th, when one employee was confirmed with the corona virus, a total of 52 people including users, staff and caregivers were confirmed.

As the quarantine authorities are conducting an epidemiological investigation, it is known that a Chinese man who works at the hospital started caring for the virus on the 7th after being diagnosed with COVID-19.

Previously, he received a diagnostic test at the Yeongdeungpo Public Health Center in Seoul on the 5th and was initially negative, but was re-tested the next day and was notified by phone on the 7th. However, Mr. A turned off his cell phone and disappeared when the public health center staff contacted him for an epidemiological investigation.

After reporting this to the police, the Yeongdeungpo Public Health Center began to identify Mr. A, and charged him with violating the Infectious Disease Prevention Act. Meanwhile, Mr. A headed to a nursing hospital located in Jinjin-eup, Namyangju-si, Gyeonggi-do.

He started nursing on the 7th at a nursing hospital in Jinjeop-eup, Namyangju-si. At the time of employment, it is reported that Mr. A presented the negative notification he received before the diagnosis to the nursing hospital to get a job.

Afterwards, 52 people were group infected at the nursing hospital where A worked for 5 days. Of these, 43 have completed the second dose of the vaccine, but it is predicted that many of the confirmed patients are elderly and their immunity may have declined somewhat as they have been vaccinated from the beginning of this year.

Meanwhile, the nursing hospital was quarantined in a cohort. It is reported that the quarantine authorities are currently conducting an in-depth epidemiological investigation to confirm the exact details.
