Super Junior Fan From Wuhan Reveals Having Attended Macau Concerts And Warns Others Of Potential Contagion

“I’m very sorry to have caused an inconvenience to everyone…”

One Super Junior fan from Wuhan, China recently posted a warning on Weibo, alerting others who attended the SUPER SHOW 8 concert in Macau on January 18-19, 2020 of a possible Wuhan coronavirus infection.

In the post, the fan apologized to everyone who attended the concert and explained that the fan had no knowledge of the coronavirus’s incubation period.

I want to apologize to everyone. I’m from Wuhan, and went to the concert in Macau. Before going to the Macau concert, I was finishing up my intern duties at a hospital. Although the teachers told us the pneumonia is really serious, they never told us that this virus has an incubation period and that having no symptoms doesn’t mean that you haven’t been infected.

And though the fan clarified that there is no sign of symptoms, the fan still revealed the seats where the fan watched the concert and asked fellow ELFs who were also in the area to “quarantine” themselves as a precautionary measure.

Right now, I don’t have any symptoms (I was wearing an N95 face mask at all times while traveling between Wuhan and Macau), but I’m still quarantining myself at home. On January 18 I was in Standing A, and on January 19 I was in $880 Area A11. If you were near me, you can start quarantining yourself.

The fan concluded that in fact, all attendees should keep their eyes on their own conditions as there may have been other ELFs from Wuhan, China who travelled to see Super Junior in person.

Also, there were actually quite a few fans from Wuhan who went to the concert and were in different zones. I hope other fans can pay more attention to any changes to their body condition, and quarantine themselves for two weeks if possible.

The fan’s Weibo post stirred up frustration among other ELFs who attended the Macau concert — though the fan asked not to panic.

Lastly, please don’t panic and utilize the online medical systems. I’m very sorry to have caused an inconvenience to everyone.

The Wuhan coronavirus comes with fever-ish symptoms, including respiratory symptoms, like dry cough, difficulty breathing, diarrhea, and body aches. There are no vaccines for this virus specifically, but the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggests supportive care like taking pain and/or fever medications, using humidifiers and/or taking hot showers to relieve sore throat and cough, drinking a lot of water, and getting good rest.

#SuperJunior I want to apologize to everyone. I’m from Wuhan, and went to the concert in Macau. Before going to the Macau concert, I was finishing up my intern duties at a hospital. Although the teachers told us the pneumonia is really serious, they never told us that this virus has an incubation period and that having no symptoms doesn’t mean that you haven’t been infected. Even after I clearly mentioned that I was going traveling, they only reminded me to be careful. Based on this, it’s clear that even regular health service workers, let alone regular citizens, did not know much about the situation before January 20. They even treat this like a common cold – there are not that many people wearing surgical face masks outside. Right now, I don’t have any symptoms (I was wearing an N95 face mask at all times while traveling between Wuhan and Macau), but I’m still quarantining myself at home. On January 18 I was in Standing A, and on January 19 I was in $880 Area A11. If you were near me, you can start quarantining yourself. Also, there were actually quite a few fans from Wuhan who went to the concert and were in different zones. I hope other fans can pay more attention to any changes to their body condition, and quarantine themselves for two weeks if possible. Lastly, please don’t panic and utilize the online medical systems. I’m very sorry to have caused an inconvenience to everyone. Happy new year. Wishing you a long and healthy life.
