Kim Min Ah of LCK and “Workman” Fame Is Being Tested For Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Kim Min Ah, who made herself known to the international audience through guest appearances on Jang Sung Kyu‘s YouTube series Workman and as the hostess of LCK (League Champions Korea), has confirmed she is being tested for Coronavirus (COVID-19) after feeling body aches and a low-fever.
During the latest live broadcast of LCK between Sandbox Gaming and Damwon Gaming, shoutcasters Atlus and LS let the viewers know about the situation at LoL Park, where the LCK is broadcast live every week. LCK already took preventative measures to prevent the spreading of Coronavirus (COVID-19) by playing all their matches without any spectators.
Later, she released a post on her personal Instagram confirming she was being tested, and will share the results with everyone when they are released.
1. I had a body temperature that was a little above 37.5 degrees Celsius and felt body aches.
2. I don’t think it was something to worry about, and the possibility [of Coronavirus] is low, but I immediately left the venue because I thought that I should not be the one to determine and judge it on my own.
3. It was the best decision to make, and I acted according to the guidelines. I’m sorry to those who I made feel uneasy.
4. I will share the results tomorrow (February 24).
