Seoul’s Covid-19 nightclub outbreak appears to be coming under control after vigorous testing and tracing procedures.

  • The outbreak began in crowded Seoul nightclubs and bars earlier this month.
  • A total of 170 infections have been traced back to the original 29-year-old clubgoer.
  • South Korea announced 15 new COVID-19 patients on Monday morning, with just two of the cases connected to the nightclub outbreak.
  • The affected venues cater to an LGBT audience, which had led to concern that visitors would hesitate to come forward for testing.
  • More than 65,000 tests connected to the clubs have been conducted so far.
