Covid 19 coronavirus: South Korea sue mum, daughter for travelling with symptoms

A mother and daughter, who visited South Korea’s popular Jeju Island on holiday, could be sued after they failed to declare COVID-19 symptoms.

According to CNN, the 52-year-old mother and her 19-year-old daughter, who had recently returned to South Korea from Boston, decided to visit despite feeling unwell.

It is understood the daughter ignored self-isolation rules, and the pair travelled to the island five days after she returned to Seoul from the US.

According to the report, the 19-year-old started showing symptoms on March 21, but the duo decided to stay on the island for a further four days where it is estimated they had contact with almost 50 strangers.
