On February 13, one of TEMPEST’s external staff members was diagnosed with COVID-19. All the members took rapid antigen tests, and they received positive results. They immediately went to the hospital and underwent PCR testing, and all seven members were diagnosed with COVID-19 today (February 14).
The TEMPEST [members] have completed the second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, and their scheduled activities were carried out after confirming their negative test results of the self-testing kits. Currently, the members are exhibiting fever and mild cold symptoms, and they are all being quarantined at home for treatment and rest as per the guidelines of the disease control authorities.
