President Moon calls for swift action to trace those that visited church, hospital linked to virus spread
문대통령 "신천지 예배•장례식 참석자 철저조사…신속조치"

President Moon Jae-in has called for swifter and stronger response to the outbreak.
He received an emergency briefing Friday morning... from Prime Minister Chung Sye-kyun.
South Korea confirmed its first death from the virus a day earlier,... while the number of confirmed cases has surpassed 150,... with the majority of new infections reported at a church in Daegu and at a hospital in Cheongdo -- in the country's southeast.
President Moon ordered thorough action to trace those who've recently been to either place.
South Korea has decided to designate Daegu and Cheongdo as "special care zones."
The government has vowed full support,... including relief items,... and has stepped up quarantine measures to prevent further spread in local communities
The prime minister said they've secured a list of worshippers at the church and will conduct checkups after placing them under self-quarantine.
The government has left its national alert level at "watch,"... but said that it will take the stronger response measures anyway.
