Hospital shuts 25 theatres after 4 nurses contracted Coronavirus by katty : May 19, 2020, 02:59:22 PM
Southern Seoul authorities are concerned after four nurses who work at Samsung Medical Centre tested positive for Coronavirus.

As a precautionary measure, the hospital has closed down 25 operating rooms on the third floor of the main building and will not treat new in-patients for the next three days.



This development raises concerns over the possibility of a bigger outbreak after medical workers of the cardiothoracic and ob-gyn operating rooms in the hospital tested positive on Monday and Tuesday.

Of the 277 patients and hospital workers who must be checked for the virus, 265 have undergone screening. Around 100 of them are waiting for the results, while the remaining 12 will be checked later in the day, according to the office of Gangnam Ward.

Authorities have yet to identify the infection route. The new group infection began when a nurse working at the hospital’s cardiothoracic operating rooms tested positive on Monday. Three other nurses later were confirmed to be infected.

The first nurse did not report for work during the weekend and showed symptoms of a fever Sunday night, according to the health authorities.
