Three foreign students attending Seoul National University were classified as suspected of being infected with the new coronavirus infection (COVID-19) ‘Omicron mutation’. Following the confirmation that three foreign students in Seoul were infected with the Omicron mutation, three additional international students from Seoul National University showed symptoms of infection.

According to the quarantine authorities on the 7th, three foreign students in Seoul who were confirmed positive for Corona 19 were infected with the Omicron mutation as a result of close examination. They are students of Seoul National University, Kyunghee University, and Hankuk University of Foreign Studies, respectively, and they visited a church in Michuhol-gu, Incheon, attended by a couple in their 40s, all of whom were the first confirmed cases of Omicron mutation in Korea. It was revealed that three Seoul National University students, who are suspected of being infected with the Omicron mutation, also visited the same church.

Fearing the spread of Omicron mutation, each university strengthened its quarantine guidelines. In particular, Seoul National University, where all of the four confirmed cases of Omicron mutation and the four suspected of being infected live in the dormitory, isolates close contacts in the dormitory and recommended a PCR test for students who lived on the same floor. However, we maintain the policy of conducting face-to-face classes and final exams until the end of the semester.

Kyung Hee University, where an international student living in a dormitory was diagnosed with the virus, is also recommending PCR testing to students. An official from Kyunghee University said, “The confirmed student used a single room in the dormitory and did not use public spaces or campus facilities, so there are no close contacts. said Kyung Hee University has decided not to review the non-face-to-face conversion of some experimental and practical subjects that are currently conducted face-to-face. Hankuk University of Foreign Studies convened a task force committee on the 6th and decided to convert all classes from the 8th to the 14th completely non-face-to-face. In the case of a confirmed student at this school, it was investigated that he took a face-to-face class in the school building on the 29th of last month, and went to the library on the 30th of last month and the 1st of this month. Accordingly, PCR test recommendations were made for 169 people, including students who had face-to-face classes with this student and students who used the same floor as the library. There are currently no confirmed cases of COVID-19 among them. An official from Hankuk University of Foreign Studies explained that the student was suspected of being infected with the Omicron mutation from the 5th, but the decision to switch to non-face-to-face classes from the 8th was “to respect the students’ right to class and the agreement between the members.”
