AdvertisementIn the extended statement Heo Ji-woong made note of how exhausted the medical staff looked when he took his test. Heo Ji-woong praised the tireless work of such personnel, and wrote that seeing it made him feel that he could endure comparative inconveniences until the virus is vanquished. Narsha echoed this sentiment, and encouraged followers to stay home if at all possible this holiday season.
Two guests on SBS radio programs, one from the program helmed by Lee Sook-young and the other from the program led by Kim Young-chul-I have tested positive for the virus though they were asymptomatic.
