[광주=뉴시스] Reporter Byun Jae-hoon = In Gwangju, the quarantine authorities are conducting a omni-directional epidemiological investigation amid the outbreak of COVID-19 group infection in an unauthorized educational facility operated by the’Korea’s Next Generation Movement Headquarters (IM Mission)’.

In particular, we pay attention to group infections that are occurring simultaneously in IM mission-related educational facilities in various places across the country such as Daejeon, Gyeonggi, and Gangwon, and focus on whether teachers’ inter-regional exchange meetings served as a catalyst for the spread of the virus.

According to the quarantine authorities of Gwangju City on the 27th, 113 confirmed cases of Corona 19 related to Gwangju TCS International School located in Unnam-dong, Gwangsan-gu.

The remaining 26 were found to be negative, but 14 of them had the amount of virus detected in the primary diagnostic test beyond the positive and negative boundaries, so the possibility of latent infection cannot be excluded.

At TCS International School, an unauthorized education facility operated by IM Mission, the ‘2021 Winter Gwangju Jesus Clone Camp’ was held from the 18th of this month, and 122 students and faculty from all over the country participated in the camp and received training in camp.

Of the camp participants, about half of those who were confirmed confirmed are residents of other localities such as Seoul, Gyeonggi, Gyeongnam, and Jeonnam.

The city’s quarantine authorities found that more than 100 people gathered from all over the country participated in accommodation, meals, classes, and worship in a space where’dense, close, and airtight’ was inevitable. During the camp period, two buildings around the international school were used as dormitories, and it is estimated that 4 to 7 people lived in each room.

Including’Ace TCS International School (Yeon Yong-dong, Buk-gu)’, another facility where a serial infection has occurred since the 23rd, the number of confirmed cases related to the IM Mission in Gwangju reached 150.

The city’s quarantine authorities are paying attention to simultaneous group infections in educational facilities related to IM missions nationwide.

The cumulative number of confirmed cases related to educational institutions affiliated with IM Mission, which is regarded as a hotbed of the nationwide group infection, is close to 350. In addition to Gwangju TCS International School, group infections were confirmed in Daejeon IEM International School, Gangwon Hongcheon Missionary Retreat, Gyeonggi Yongin Joseph TCS International School, and Gyeonggi Anseong TCS International School.

Ahead of this month’s camp training, the city’s quarantine authorities are capturing and intensively investigating the situation where there were a number of exchange meetings in which teachers at each facility share their educational experiences and know-how with each other.

In fact, all 25 teachers at TCS school were confirmed to be corona19. The movement of teachers before and after infection is also a key investigation.

If the exchange meeting is confirmed to be true, it is a violation of the quarantine rules prohibiting religious meetings other than worship, making it difficult to avoid judicial action.

In addition, unlike Daejeon IEM School, the existence of another group infectious agent is also confirmed when considering the fact that churches with a sponsored and solidarity character use the same building and confirmed members of the church in Gwangju.

In the Western Antioch Church, where four confirmed persons related to the TCS school frequently visited, a full member inspection is in progress. During the thorough examination, three additional members of the church were found to be infected. Antioch Church is a large church with over 1,000 members.

An official from the city’s quarantine authorities said, “As it is not irrelevant to the infection of the national IM mission group, we will focus our ability to investigate epidemiological investigations on how to spread the virus.” It is urgent. In cooperation with the police, we will use all means such as credit card usage history, closed circuit (CC) TV video, and mobile phone location tracking.”
