and to demonstrate in-short how desperate, to say speedy, efficient and forceful tracking, testing, diagnose and treatment is in South Korea : by day’s-end May 12 Tuesday

  • three major cell-phone carriers have identified 10,905 people
    of which 11% in 1210 users are foreign nationals, whose phones have connected to telecommunication towers in the vicinity of iTaewon clubs for more than 30 minutes .
  • 8490 people have been tested arising from iTaewon clubs, of which 102 tested positive – plus 1809 not directly connected totaling 10,299 tests
  • YongSanGu regional Corona Virus testing site had an average of 30 people with no line to wait, per day since COVID-19 out-break but after infections from iTaewon clubs were known: 70 people came for tests on May 7 Thursday, 177 next day to rise up to 726 persons on May 12 Tuesday thus over 20% normal capacity .

reports are continuously coming out of mothers and grand-mothers testing positive from sons who have visited iTaewon clubs, now mostly satellite cities around the Capital of SEOUL and Korea’s third city Daegu .

it is estimated it costs approximately W44,000,000 when one person gets infected with Corona Virus . this includes man-power needed to trace targets and medication, as South Korea’s total infection exceeds 11,000 persons .

– May 12 Tuesday a full Week after the first person tested positive for Corona Virus from iTaewon clubs, iTaewon BLog

 

( Thursday noon update ) Officially the second City of South Korea : Busan spiked on tracking targets from 103 to 236 related to iTaewon clubs last Week, recording 133 more people to be tested over-night in a single day according to KCDC numbers as of 5pm yestereday . these are persons who has actually been at iTaewon clubs a Week ago where about half has been tested and only two tested positive .

again in an unprecedented move (inCheon City West of SEOUL have just announced to only verify cell phone numbers in place of the person’s real name): Busan City authorities have announced they will not reveal the patients where-abouts movement even if they test positive . here the nation is at awe how the administration is making exception for the supposed gay society, as until now : every movement from a day before the first symptom was revealed on regional administration board On-Line from work to home . strictly on numbers : the government spending wastes several hundred Million Won on tracking efforts, when a suspected contact lies to where he/she has been to //

 

( May 16 Saturday ) Nation-Wide Test and infection DATA :

by this morning a total of 162 persons has been tested Covid-19 positive of which 88 arise for iTaewon clubs – most in their twenties from around Metropolitan SEOUL, and 74 contracted from them . contacts amount to 46% of total diagnosed patients .

  • SEOUL 90 effected, GyeongGi 31 and inCheon 23 totalling 144 around SEOUL metropolitan area including its satellite cities,
  • CheungCheong BukDo region 9, Busan 4, GangWondDo 1, CheungCheong NamDo 1, JeonRa BeukDo 1, GyeongSang NamDo 1 and Jeju island 1.
  • 100 people make the bulk of age 19 ~ 29, 26 in their thirties, 16 under 18, 9 in fourties, 6 in fifties and 5 over sixty years of age of which middle-age and elders were transmitted from their children .
  • infected consist of 133 males and 29 females //

by late afternoon almost everyone in relation to iTaewon clubs – which amount to 56,239 people has been tested . this is an increase of about 10,000 since yesterday and account for those who had been to nine clubs in iTaewon plus those KCDC was tracking including King, Trunk, Queen, Soho, Him, Fountain, SeulPan, Made and Pistil .

however with no serious out-break yet, confirmed case is low compared to what authorities have been bracing for, uncomparable to two previous mass-infection including ShinCheonJi Church in DaeGu and Epidemic Call Center in Guro-Gu SEOUL . although the wave may be still-to-come analysts point to two factors why current iTaewon club infection spread might be comparably low :

  • aside from further bars-sorts the infected went to, schools and work-places already had space-between-seats, sanitation and masks in-place . in-short : sensible people – aside from frantic sect-followers and party-goers no-matter what – nowadays act as if : others are in-fact already infected .

authorities are still investigating subjects arising from iTaewon clubs to minimize second contraction, and advise those who have been there to come forward .

 

[ SEOUL Test and Diagnose Confirmed RATE ]

as of Saturday late afternoon May 16 total Covid-19 positive cases amount to 731 persons with 6 more than yesterday, of which total 90 and 5 new from yesterday arose from iTaewon clubs .

dividing into geographic sectors within the Capital : the richest GangNamGu (South of the Han River) amounted to 71 as the most while Gwan-AkGu (South-West) 53, SongPa 42, SeoCho 40, DongJak 37, Guro 35, DongDaeMun and YongSan 34 and EunPyeong 30 .

now to the cause of infection : in-flow from abroad amounted to the most at 261 including returning Koreans, Guro Call Center 98 current iTaewon clubs 90, Guro church 41, DongDaeMun medical-care, church and PC-rooms 28, EunPyeong St.Mary’s Hospital 14, SungDongGu multi-purpose building 13, visitors to DaeGu 11, JongRoGu contacts 10 and 28 infected from other regions in Korea .

 

( Two Weeks there-after on May 24 Sunday night ) Korean government authorities announced : daily new infections increased three-times-fold from 8.7 persons the two-Weeks before to 23.2 people in the past two-Weeks . further-more they are confident the out-break is being contained as 80% of new cases arise from known subjects who have already been identified through constant tracking . and although there has NOT been a mass out-break directly from recent iTaewon clubs, scattered new cases of unconfirmed-origin are steadily on the increase – hinted much “silent spreaders” among those related to iTaewon clubs, now appearing from gathering-places aside from clubs such as coin-Karaoke, buffet restaurants, restaurants, coffee shops and churches of which they revealed a total of 27 places and when the subjects have been there .

and as authorities are still having a hard time locating club attendees, they will now implement a new registration-system on customers entering clubs, karaoke bars and alcohol wagons(now gone indoors). from next months, those who enter designated store-types will be issue a QR-code card which will not register any personal information and will automatically self-delete after four-Weeks . this system will be effective until the spread wanes-down .
