Prime Minister Chung Sye-kyun is seeing off Wuhan-evacuees leaving an isolation facility in Jincheon.
The first group of South Koreans evacuated from the coronavirus-hit Chinese city of Wuhan has been released from quarantine.
The 366 evacuees that arrived in Gimpo on January 31, returned home this morning after two weeks of quarantine in government designated facilities in Jincheon and Asan.
The Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said that as a precautionary measure, all evacuees have been told to carefully check themselves for signs of illness and report any developments to medical authorities.
The second group of 333 Korean nationals is also set to be released tomorrow after the final test on them came back negative for the virus.■
