The South Korean government has declared them “Special Care Zones”. “Considering the outbreak of COVID-19 in South Korea, we urge those of you who are and/or will be traveling to South Korea to increase caution and not to travel specifically to the Daegu and Gyeongsang Bukdo regions,” declared the travel advisory, which was posted on Sunday. Other countries, including the United States, have also issued travel advisories for South Korea.The United States issued a level 2 travel advisory for South Korea on Saturday. Visitors were asked to “exercise increased caution”, according to the travel.state.gov website, but the US government has yet to issue a “do not travel” advisory. “Many cases of COVID-19 have been associated with travel to or from mainland China or close contact with a travel-related case, but sustained community spread has been reported in South Korea. Sustained community spread means that people in South Korea have been infected with the virus, but how or where they became infected is not known, and the spread is ongoing,” the advisory says. As of Sunday, 13 countries have banned or restricted entry of South Koreans, based on the world.kbs.co.kr report.
