An American solder infected with coronavirus in South Korea was brought to Camp Humphreys, US Army Garrison Humphreys Commander Michael F. Tremblay has confirmed in a Facebook Live video.
Camp Humphreys, near the city of Pyeongtaek, is the headquarters of the United States Forces Korea (USFK).
The soldier has been placed in negative pressure isolation to prevent the virus spreading, and is being monitored by medical professionals, Tremblay said.
The soldier is a 23-year-old man and is the first American service member to be confirmed with coronavirus.
On the military base, cinemas and bars have closed, and soldiers’ movements have been restricted, Tremblay said.
The USFK are only conducting mission-essential travel to Daegu, the southern city at the heart of the South Korean outbreak.
