The coronavirus, also known as the COVID-19, first broke out in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China at the end of last year. It is spreading all over the world and the World Health Organization (WHO) declared that it's a pandemic. South Korea had over 900 infected patients a day at the end of February. Three weeks have passed and the number of infected patients per day dropped to less than 100. South Korea's quarantine system against the COVID-19 is considered a model example. South Korean experts say there are sporadic cluster infections and it's too early to let our guard down. On this week's #Korea 4.0, we sit dow with infectious disease specialists to see the present status of the COVID-19 virus in Korea and what we should be on the look out for. We also take a look at the quarantine system of the Korean government and see what kind of measures are needed in case the COVID-19 virus is prolonged.
