American soldier gets infected with coronavirus

30

Testing for a new American coronavirus coronavirus gave a positive result. The service of this soldier took place at the Camp Carol military base in the city of Chilgok, the center of the eponymous South Korean county.


This was reported to Yonhap today by representatives of the US military contingent stationed in South Korea (USFK).

Now the 23-year-old soldier has been removed from the base and is in quarantine at home, doctors are watching his condition.

Chilgok is located near Daegu, the capital of Gyeongsangbuk-do province, where most cases of coronavirus infection in South Korea have been recorded. Of the 1146 cases recorded in the country, 944 are in Daegu.

This is the first case of COVID-19 infection recorded among the US military in the Republic of Korea.

Now representatives of the US and South Korean health authorities are checking all the contacts of the American soldier. The release of the command states that the USFK is taking all measures against the spread of coronavirus.

Shortly before this, information appeared about a 61-year-old resident of Daegu who had become infected with a coronavirus. She is the widow of an officer in the US military contingent in South Korea.

      Vladimir 16 is a soldier, for him the order should be above personal interests! God forbid, our fighter in Syria will get infected from a prisoner Turk, also write "would sit at home"?

        But do not compare our soldiers with the occupying forces!
        Neither in Korea, nor in Japan, nor in Italy, nor in Germany ...
        If you do not know: Germans do not have the right to demand the withdrawal of nuclear weapons from their territory without the consent of ALL NATO members. That’s how it works.
        And to get such consent against the will of the United States - you understand, is not realistic. hi

      I picked it up from a woman with low social responsibility, as in the joke where a motros fucked a black woman in the port and told her "be proud, I gave you the best Hong Kong syphilis!"

      Single outlier. Cope. In the US, 76 are infected.

        Debatable. There, a normal person will think ten times before going to a doctor with a cold, but he will definitely go to work.

    So, according to the logic of things, the base must be isolated from the outside world, otherwise it is just catching flies with an aquarium!

    By the way, did protesters stop running in Hong Kong? By the way, a virus appeared on time, because there was a political dead end on the face.

      The virus will pass, they will start running again. Unless the main ringleaders of protests die suddenly. From the virus of course ...

        Well, it cannot be such that more than one Hong Kong horse would not die of the virus.

          The Hong Kong horse did not die.

          If you haven’t noticed, then I will tell you.
          The "protests" in Hong Kong stopped before the virus.
          As soon as the US-China trade agreement was signed.
          The agreement was signed, funding for the "protests" was stopped. hi

          No, no, psychologists are those shots that the first pull away from where it becomes dangerous! That's why they are psychologists, who would smell such a thing.

    Whoever launched this virus, he forgot that the Earth is round, and sooner or later, but the virus will reach it.
