So far, one case of the new coronavirus has been confirmed in Korea. Meanwhile, health authorities are stepping up quarantine measures ahead of the lunar New Year holiday. Airport officials are thoroughly screening passengers arriving at Incheon International Airport from China. Their number reaches 30,000 daily. Disinfection of airport facilities has also been intensified. However, because symptoms can't be detected during the incubation period, personal hygiene is of prior importance.

[Soundbite] CHUNG EUN-KYUNG(KOREA CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL & PREVENTION(JAN. 20)) : "To prevent infectious respiratory diseases it is important to wash hands often, cover the mouth when coughing and wear a mask when visiting medical facilities."

All arriving passengers must fill out health questionnaires upon arrival and report to quarantine officials if they have a fever or respiratory symptoms. Those who develop fever or cough within 14 days after arrival must call the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention at 1339.
