Jupiter Entertainment announced that singer and actor Lee Ji Hoon has confirmed positive for COVID-19. The agency released an official statement regarding his results.
Lee, who has completed his second vaccination, received a negative PCR test on February 5, but felt abnormal symptoms the next day and proceeded with self-quarantine. Although he was self-isolating and taking self-diagnosis tests more than four times, he continued to receive negative results. However, his fever rose to 39 degrees celsius and took another PCR test on February 7 and finally received a positive test.
Due to the rapid increase of confirmed cases after the Lunar New Year holiday, the computerized processing for testing was delayed. Lee, who received a positive result on February 9, is currently recovering well. With his quick response to his symptoms, he was able to concentrate on recovery without any major problems.
