According to KCDC, a viral test on such cases was underway as the 91 people had tested positive for the new coronavirus after they were released from quarantine.
According to The KCDC Director-General, Jeong Eun-kyeong, the test results will be out at least two weeks from now as the Korean Health officials will look into whether those who retested positive had an antibody that would indicate whether they had recovered.
