Emergency Response Center, Epidemiology and Case Management Team Abstract We analyzed reports for 59,073 contacts of 5,706 coronavirus disease (COVID-19) index patients reported in South Korea during January 20-March 27, 2020. Of 10,592 household contacts, 11.8% had COVID-19. Of 48,481 nonhousehold contacts, 1.9% had COVID-19. Use of personal protective measures and social distancing reduces the likelihood of transmission.

These laboratories quickly became overburdened, resulting in turnaround times beyond what is clinically actionable. The availability of commercial SARS-CoV-2 diagnostics decentralized coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19)...
