February 10 According to South Korean media quoting South Korean judicial circles on the 9th, on the afternoon of the 9th, former President Park Geun-hye, who was quarantined at Notre Dame Hospital in Seoul, South Korea, returned to Seoul Detention Center 20 days later.
It is reported that Park Geun-hye had close contact with the detention center staff diagnosed with the novel coronavirus on January 19, and the results of two subsequent nucleic acid tests were negative.
However, considering Park Geun-hye is old (68 years old) and failed to treat his old illness during two weeks of isolation, the Ministry of Justice allowed him to stay in the hospital for six days after lifting the quarantine.
Park Geun-hye was discharged from the hospital on the same day after finishing treatment.
Since the end of 2020, mass infection has occurred in many detention centers in South Korea.
Both former President Park Geun-hye and former President Lee Myung-bak have confirmed cases in the places where they serve their sentences.
