Read the full statement below:
Hello, this is IST Entertainment.
This is in regards to ATBO’s Jeong Seunghwan’s health and absence from scheduled activities.
Jeong Seunghwan experienced mild cold symptoms early this morning (August 9), and he tested positive through a COVID-19 self-testing kit.
After that, he took several more self-testing kits and repeatedly got both positive and negative results. In order to obtain accurate results, he visited the hospital in the morning to undergo a PCR test and was diagnosed with COVID-19 a while ago.
Except for Jeong Seunghwan, the members currently have no particular symptoms, and they tested negative through the self-testing kits. However, considering the incubation period, we will continue to check their condition, and they will keep taking COVID-19 tests.
In addition, Jeong Seunghwan will concentrate on treatment and recovery for the time being in accordance with the guidelines of the health authorities, and we will inform you again about ATBO’s schedule in the future.
We ask for BOAT’s (fandom name) generous understanding and warm support, and we will do our best to help Jeong Seunghwan recover quickly.
Wishing Jeong Seunghwan a speedy recovery!
