The case was confirmed to be infected with the new coronavirus in post-mortem testing, and the subsequent whole-genome sequencing analysis revealed that the infection was a variant strain. Afterwards, his two family members who entered the United Kingdom with him and his spouse who entered the United Kingdom as early as November were diagnosed, but whether the three people were also infected with the mutant virus is still being tested and analyzed.

Reported that Goyang City, Gyeonggi Province recently announced the travel trajectory of this family of four since entering the country. Among them, the confirmed dead cases were rushed to the hospital due to sudden cardiac arrest during the home isolation period. During the process, 3 neighbors who helped and 4 emergency rescuers (all wearing protective clothing) were listed as close Contacts. After testing, the nucleic acid tests of these 7 people were all negative, and home isolation measures have been taken. The problem is that among the three family members who were diagnosed after the incident, one of them had been released from quarantine because he entered the country in early November. The case went to hospitals, beauty salons and other public places on the 23rd and 26th of this month, and had been with 4 people. Close contact. If this person is finally determined to be a case of mutant virus infection, it is not ruled out that the mutant virus will spread to the Korean community.

She was diagnosed and sent to Isolation center. At present, South Korea has not been reported to be infected with the mutant new coronavirus originating in South Africa.

News1 reported on the 30th that a total of 792 confirmed cases have been reported in the eastern detention center of Seoul where a large-scale epidemic has occurred, making it the facility unit with the most confirmed cases since the outbreak of the new crown in South Korea. In order to reduce the density of detention, the Eastern Detention Center has successively transferred non-confirmed detainees to other detention centers, and plans to expand the scope of parole by focusing on detainees with weak immunity or good performance. According to reports, former President Lee Myung-bak, who had previously served his sentence in the Eastern Detention Center, was sent to Seoul National University Hospital for treatment of chronic illness last week after the outbreak. He was expected to end his treatment and return to the detention center before the end of the month, but considering the outbreak of mass infection in the detention center, he might extend his treatment time in the hospital.

The situation in Japan seems to be worse, because the first mutant new coronaviruses from the United Kingdom and South Africa appeared, with a total of 15 cases. In order to “block” the entry of the mutant new crown virus, Japanese airports have further strengthened quarantine measures starting on the 30th. According to the Japan Broadcasting Association, Japanese nationals returning from countries and regions where the mutated new coronavirus has been discovered are required to provide a negative nucleic acid test certificate obtained within 72 hours before departure, and receive a nucleic acid test again in Japan.

It is reported that 944 newly diagnosed patients with new coronary pneumonia in Tokyo on the 30th, only 5 cases less than the highest record last Saturday. According to Japan’s “Asahi Shimbun” report on the 30th, Tokyo Governor Yuriko Koike said at a press conference that the New Year’s Eve will be a “watershed” in whether the spread of the virus can be controlled.

The Japanese government recommends that the people “home in the New Year”.
