A Blockchain company in Seoul may be ground zero for a fresh resurgence of COVID-19

A major South Korean tech hub is under scrutiny by local health authorities.

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.
