Jeonnam Youngam daycare center confirmed one after another… Myeon office closed

The spread of’Corona 19′ in Yeongam, Jeollanam-do is unusual.

Following the monk of Gwaneumsa temple, Shindo, and residents of the nearby Dojido village, new confirmed patients through daycare centers different from the existing infection route have led to the closure of the Myeon office (photo).

According to Jeonnam-do and Yeongam-gun on the 20th, three new corona19 confirmed cases related to Yeongam A daycare center (Jeonnam 679-681) occurred. The quarantine authorities estimate that these are the nth infections that started with the husband of a nursery school teacher (No. 669, Jeollanam-do), who was confirmed on the 18th.

A daycare-related infection was revealed in the process of examining contacts from Yeongam Gwaneumsa Temple and Dojido Village, where 24 confirmed cases were poured. Two students at this daycare center (Chonnam No. 665·667), a teacher (Jeonnam No. 668), and the teacher’s husband (Jeonnam No. 669) gave birth on the same day.

This restaurant employee (No. 673, Jeollanam-do), who was in contact with the husband of a daycare teacher at Restaurant B in Haksan-myeon, Yeongam, on the 12th was confirmed on the 19th. A customer who stopped by this restaurant and came in contact with an employee (Jeonnam 681) was also infected. The juniors of the daycare teacher’s husband (Jeonnam 679) and the daughter of Jeonnam 679 (Jeonnam 680) were also infected. The number of infections related to daycare center A has increased to 9, including 3 indigenous children.

The quarantine authorities recognized that restaurant B was frequently used by employees of the neighboring Myeon office, temporarily closed the Haksan Myeon Office, and started a diagnostic test for all employees. In particular, the spread of childcare centers was deeply related to the movement of the teacher’s husband, Jeollanam-do 669, and began to identify contacts and expand diagnostic tests.

However, the first infection route in Jeonnam No. 669 was not found, and the contact and movement of Jeonnam No. 669 is very wide, so there is great concern about the occurrence of additional confirmed cases.

In this regard, 30 civil servants in Baeji-myeon and Haksan-myeon, Yeongam-gun, went into self-quarantine. At the Doojangmyeon office, a confirmed head of the office is going to be inspected, and employees dispatched from the county office are conducting civil petitions.

Accordingly, Jeonnam-do and Yeongam-gun are also reviewing the imposition of fines after confirming that some residents violated the ban on gatherings of 5 or more people and 7 to 9 people often hang out in the same place during the same time in the case of the village where the infection spread among village residents.

An official from Jeonnam Province said, “The spread of Corona 19 in the Yeongam area is critical.” “We are trying to block and identify the maximum infection route.”
