According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, the number of COVID-19 confirmed patients in Daegu’s Gyeongbuk area amounts to more than 350 people thus accounting for the majority of the confirmed patients. Since the patients from Daegu are increasing every day, the government has designated the area as a special management zone.
While speaking to media the actor said, “In order to overcome difficult times, various institutions and medical staff are working hard, and I wanted to contribute a little even if it does not amount much.”
