South Korea is a country that has been struck by the Covid-19 or Coronavirus. The whole world is talking about one of the most dangerous contributors to this disaster in South Korea is Patient 31. The story of this patient has many examples for the people in the world. We must humble enough to listen to medical officers or other relevant parties to eradicate this pandemic. So let’s get into the article about Patient 31.
1.Start of the Corona-virus outbreak
The first corona-virus from South Korea reported on the 20th of January this year. The 35-year-old Chinese woman from Wuhan, who came to South Korea, became the first coroner to report from Korea. However, four weeks after the onset of the disease, there are only 30 corona patients in Korea. So the Korean health department was successfully controlling the spread of the corona-virus. But it all turns upside down with the arrival of the 31 patient.
2. How does it start?
On the 6th of February, a 61-year-old woman hospitalized in a minor accident in Daegu, South Korea. Although she was suffering from a headache at the time, she thinks the cause of the head trauma is due to the accident she met.
3. Fever and symptoms
While in the hospital for several days, the woman begins to have a fever. Doctors at the hospital told her to undergo a test for corona-virus. But she doesn’t face that test. She firmly believes that she has not contracted corona-virus because she has not traveled abroad. In the meantime, she would go to a few crowded places without fever. She travels to a church full of devotees to eat at a buffet with a friend, take a bath in a public bath, and attend church services for two weekends.
4. Getting confirmation of corona
As the woman begins to exhibit more and more corona-virus-related symptoms, doctors repeatedly urge her to undergo the corona-virus test. So she starts to oppose it and starts arguing with doctors. She then left the hospital and went to another hospital, where she was tested for corona-virus. It is revealed that she has contracted corona-virus. This is confirmed on the 17th of February. As such, she’s named 31st corona in South Korea.
5. Great spreading
As a result just a few days after the above woman is confirmed to be a coroner, a rapid increase in the number of corona-virus infections in South Korea begins. The number of infected people exceeds. Almost all of them are people in the area, including the church where the woman was found. After examining over 9,300 devotees of this church, which belongs to a religious sect called Shinchonji, about 1,200 of them have been diagnosed with coronal symptoms.
When we think of that situation, our fears can increase, and the condition of the 31-year-old woman will be affected. We must protect ourselves as well as others. Therefore it is essential at this moment to act in the best interests of all.
