An elderly woman accidentally spread the 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV or COVID-19) while attending a service at a South Korean cult, increasing the number of infected people in South Korea dramatically.


A 61-year-old woman was reportedly linked to the spread of the virus that infected 37 other members of the Shincheonji Church of Jesus in Daegu, North Gyeongsang Province.

 


The woman was hospitalized on Feb. 7 following a car accident and developed a fever three days later. On Feb. 18 doctors performed tests on her and confirmed that she had the virus.


It is unclear how the woman contracted the virus as she did not travel to China during the outbreak and said she was never aware of any contact with other infected patients.


About 1,000 members of the church were reportedly present when the woman attended the service.


The number of infections on Thursday was 53, of which 51 are from Daegu. In total, the country now has 156 confirmed cases, based on the data from Worldometers.



After the news broke out, Mayor Kwon Young-jin declared the city is facing an unprecedented crisis and ordered kindergartens as well as public libraries to shut down. Daegu has since turned into a ghost town.


The church has temporarily closed its facilities following the confirmed cases of COVID-19 and is now moving its meetings online.
