Coronavirus is spreading so fast and so soon.

As reported by Sinchew, the number of cases in South Korea has reached 6,000 people! The country’s Central Epidemic Prevention Countermeasures Headquarters announced on Thursday (5th March 2020) that there were 322 new diagnoses of coronal pneumonia, bringing it up to 6,088, with 40 deaths so far.

The spread of the epidemic caused many people to line up in the cold overnight to buy face masks. Prime Minister Ding Shijun noted that the government “in principle” banned the export of masks and plans to distribute them to the public fairly.

The conditions were severe. People were seen rushing to buy masks four days in a row. Outside the supermarkets in Goyang, Yizheng, and Yongin, more than a hundred people lined up to buy masks overnight. At one time, 700 people lined up outside the supermarket in Yishan, with the temperature only about -5 degrees Celsius, and after waiting for almost 6 hours, they would only get one box each.
