The coronavirus outbreak now in South Korea is in a critical stage. It is now the second-largest number of cases of COVID-19 outside China.
The government prompted the country to RED ALERT which means that the country is in the highest alert for the infectious disease.
In a previous article, we learned that the spike in the number of cases began when a member of a religious sect in the city of Daegu got infected with the virus.
Meanwhile, in an attempt to contain the virus in public places, hotels have started to use toothpicks inside their elevators. The toothpicks are used to push the buttons so people would avoid direct contact.
This is maybe due to the video of some people in China that are spitting on the elevator buttons. Other than South Korea, other countries such as Iran were also struggling with the virus. Based on the report Iran is with a high mortality rate.
Based on the report of BBC Persia, the death toll was already over 200. This information was from the source that works inside the country’s health department.
Aside from Iran, Italy had also had an increase in the number of cases. Because of this, Italy had been placed by its Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Alert Level 3 with widespread local transmissions.
