According to Asia Kyungjae, at least 44 employees of an unnamed South Korean Blockchain company recently tested positive for COVID-19. The employees have since been quarantined.

The report states that the company is based in the southern Gwanak District of Seoul; a well-known hub for large tech companies. Some are concerned that this newly discovered hotspot could lead to a fresh wave of coronavirus patients in the country.

We previously reported that Jeju Island, a tourism-heavy island in South Korea, now requires all visitors to use a Blockchain-based app to generate a decentralized identity for private and secure COVID-19 contact tracing.
