Time-lapse map of confirmed COVID-19/coronavirus cases in South Korea (16:00 KST FEB 28 2020)

The virus has no borders.
A widespread outbreak can occur in any country at any time.
Be aware.

The sharp rise from 19th February was caused by a series of infection throughout a South Korean cult called Sincheonji. The members of the cult travelled to other parts of the country and spread the disease into other communities. This case demonstrates that a single group activity with a single patient in it can be the starting point of a major epidemic in your country.
