Corona 19 mutation virus emergency. In particular, the spread of the mutant virus in Ulsan is unusual. The reason that the number of corona confirmed cases in Ulsan is increasing recently is because the mutant virus is spreading greatly.
In the month of April in Ulsan Metropolitan City, 772 people were confirmed coronavirus. Last month, more than the total number of confirmed cases in Ulsan (716) came out last month. Only from April 28 to May 4, 283 people were confirmed. A mutant virus from the UK is leading the spread. Ulsan city quarantine authorities screened and tested 80 of the confirmed cases in Ulsan for 6 weeks from 2 to 6 weeks in March. As a result, 63.8% (51) were infected with the mutant virus from the UK. It is more than four times that of 14.8% of the nation’s mutant virus detection rate.
The city of Ulsan issued an administrative order for workers in multi-use facilities, such as call centers and barbers and beauty salons, estimated to have an estimated 50,000 from the 5th to the 14th, to undergo a corona preemptive test. The quarantine authorities are very concerned about the possibility that the mutation from Ulsan will spread across the country. Tae-ho Yoon, head of quarantine prevention at the Central Accident Control Headquarters, said on the 5th, “If the mutant virus continues to spread as the current trend, there is a risk of a big outbreak.” He asked.
According to data from the quarantine authorities, the number of infected three major mutant viruses nationwide in the UK, South Africa, and Brazil was cumulatively 632 as of the 5th. As contact with the patient was confirmed, 867 cases were virtually presumed to be mutant infections. In total, there are 1499 people. There were 1344 cases in the UK, 141 cases in South Africa, and 14 cases in Brazil.
By region, the spread of mutation in the Ulsan region is severe, with the UK mutation being the most prevalent, the Ulsan region UK mutant infection reports were 320, with 76 positive cases of infection, and 244 epidemiologically related cases. Compared to 79 cases in Seoul (47 confirmed cases, 32 cases related to epidemiology), the seriousness can be seen. Gyeonggi-do has the highest number of mutant virus infections with 455 cases (confirmed 140 cases, epidemiological related 315 cases), but considering the population size (about 1.1 million in Ulsan and 13 million in Gyeonggi), Ulsan is in a serious situation.
Mutant viruses are characterized by having higher transmission power than general coronaviruses. The South African and Brazilian mutants are concerned because there are studies that show that the existing vaccines are less effective. However, although the UK mutation has high propagation power, it is effective even with the existing vaccine. On the 8th of the 8th and the 15th of the Teacher’s Day, we must refrain from or be careful to meet the elderly parents and teachers. In particular, young people should be aware that there are many asymptomatic patients. May, the family master, is uneasy due to the spread of the mutant virus.
