On the afternoon of the 23rd, a temporary screening clinic for novel coronavirus infections (Corona 19) in the Seoul Station Square is showing a rather busy appearance. yunhap news

A boiler repairman went to a customer’s house to repair a broken boiler and then self-isolate. This is because the customer informed him that he was a confirmed person of the novel coronavirus infection (Corona 19) only after the repair was completed.

According to Bucheon-si, Gyeonggi-do on the 23rd, earlier this month, a boiler repair technician A, found a house in Bucheon and repaired the boiler. It is said that it was due to a Chinese tenant who lived in the house and asked the landlord to repair the boiler, claiming that the boiler was broken.

However, Mr. A said that he heard an absurd sound in the process of fixing the boiler and calculating the repair cost. Tenant B informed him that he was a confirmed corona19, and said, “Because you have been in contact with me, it would be better to have an examination.” Mr. B is said to have been waiting for admission to a life treatment center after being recently diagnosed with Corona 19.

Mr. A was immediately tested for Corona 19. The results were negative, but because they were classified as close contacts, they had to go into self-isolation for 14 days. Due to the nature of his job in winter, Mr. A is worried about making a living right away.

Bucheon-si quarantine authorities are considering whether to accuse Mr. B of violating the Infectious Disease Prevention and Management Act. Corona 19 confirmed persons should not contact other people even if they are at home. In October of last year, famous YouTuber Kook-bi (female) had a birthday party with her acquaintances during self-isolation after entering overseas, and uploaded a video of the party on YouTube to be controversial. Last month, the police sent Kookmin BC to the prosecution after posting an opinion on the charges of violating the Infectious Disease Prevention Act.

Mr. B is said to have told Mr. A that he said, “I was embarrassed for a moment.” The city of Bucheon is planning to examine whether Mr. B was intentional. An official from Bucheon City said, “The key to applying the alleged violation of the Infectious Disease Prevention and Management Act is whether it is intentional or not,” he said. “After the investigation, we will take appropriate measures.”
