After the singer Chungha was confirmed to have the Coronavirus on December 7, 2020, things got worse when it was revealed that multiple idols were tied back to Chungha, including Mina, WJSN‘s Yeonjung, DIA‘s Chaeyeon, and TWICE‘s Sana.
Chungha faced some unwarranted criticism. She volunteered to be tested after learning about the positive case at the sports center she was visiting for her shoulder rehabilitation.
And her test result came out as negative. But then the situation changed in a complete reversal. Her negative diagnosis changed to positive.
She was criticized for being the central cause of the Coronavirus scare within girl groups.
Here the schedule of Chungha before she tested positive for coronavirus :
December 2: Chungha visits “A” sports center
December 4, evening: Gathering for Mina’s birthday party at Mina’s house – Chungha, Mina, DIA’s Chayeon, WJSN’s Yeonjung
December 4, night: Separate gathering at Chungha’s house – Chungha, WJSN’s Yeonjung, TWICE’s Sana

December 6, 8:30 am: Chungha voluntarily takes a Coronavirus test.
December 6, 7:34 pm: Chungha’s manager and staff confirmed negative.
December 6, 7:46 pm: Chungha receives a negative test result.
December 7, 12:36 am: Chungha posts on her fan cafe that she is staying home.
December 7, 9:30 am: Chungha’s test result changes to positive.
Due to the negative result, Chungha took to her fancafe to chat with some fans.
But hours later, the health center called her and reversed the result, telling her she was positive for Coronavirus. The mistake came from a computer error in the emergency room. MNH Entertainment asked for the public’s understanding, given the situation.
As soon as she was notified of her positive diagnosis, she told all of her friends about it, which led to the flurry of tests done by all of the idols she was in contact with.
Currently, she is hospitalized and receiving treatment at a Coronavirus care facility within a hospital.
Chungha also released a statement apologizing for the situation.
