There are now 18 confirmed cases of the new corona virus in South Korea.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC) said Wednesday that cases 17 and 18 had been reported.

The 17th confirmed case of infection was a 38-year-old man who visited Singapore from January 15 to 24 to participate in an international conference. He had himself tested after he was informed that a Malaysian among those attending the conference tested positive for the novel corona virus. The Korean patient is currently being treated in isolation at a hospital in Goyang City, Gyeonggi Province, it said.

The 18th confirmed case of infection in Korea was a 21-year-old woman. She is the daughter of the woman who was confirmed as the 16th case of infection after the visit to Thailand on Tuesday. Urgent measures have been taken for the employees of the "21st Century" hospital in Gwangju, where the mother and daughter were staying, it said.

The remaining 16 patients with the lung disease originating from China will be treated in selected clinics across the country. Their condition is described as stable.
