I have contracted Coronavirus.

It was careless of me to live disregarding all of the cautions provided by the government and those around me.

Just how big could one individual’s behavior impact all of society be…

I am sorry to those who could have been infected by me.

The stupid judgments I made, it’s how I became like this. I lived thinking it would never happen to me.

I am currently hospitalized.

I currently feel grateful and apologetic, reflecting on my past.

There are so many things I want to say…

There are so many people I want to see…

— Jaejoong
