Singer Chungha is the latest celebrity to test positive for COVID-19, according to a statement released by her agency MNH Entertainment.
This is MNH Entertainment.
We announce that the agency’s artist Chungha has tested positive for COVID-19.
Chungha recently found out that she had come into contact with a confirmed case and voluntarily got tested. On the morning of December 7, the test results came out positive.
Chungha halted all of her activities and immediately entered self-quarantine, and she is taking the necessary measures instructed by health authorities.
The agency’s artists and staff who have crossed paths with Chungha have been tested or will be tested, and we will take follow-up measures as necessary once we [receive the results].
The agency will actively cooperate with the government’s policies and disinfect the headquarters, perform a general inspection for further potential infection, and do our best to manage all of our artists.
Chungha herself then confirmed the positive test in a statement of her own.
Our Byulharang (Chungha’s fans), I’m leaving this post in case you get too worried if I don’t say anything~
I’m sorry and sorry again. I tried to be careful, but I guess it wasn’t enough.
I was also urgently notified today and just found out.
I’ll return again and promote in good health!
Our Byulharang should also be careful and careful once more!
Don’t worry too much, and let’s meet soon!!
Once again, I’m sorry.
While I was taking a break after Thanksgiving, a breakout within the idol industry in Korea finally occurred. UP10TION’s Bitto tested positive, followed by his group member Kogyeol, then it was announced that Yiren and Sihyeon of EVERGLOW had positive tests. It would probably be impressive if they manage to stop the spread here.
Honestly, it’s been something of a miracle that idols haven’t been hit with this until now, no matter how many precautions are being taken given the amount of people they interact with and how they gather in large groups for filmings and what not. One just has to hope that with cases in Korea ticking up again (though still like almost comically low compared to America, sigh) that things don’t snowball because COVID-19 is the type of virus where that can happen disturbingly easily.
