The coronavirus outbreak is also disrupting the South Korean parliament.
The National Assembly announced that it will close the doors of its main building and the members' office building from 6 PM today until 9 AM Wednesday to disinfect the area.
Announcing the shutdown, the first-ever in South Korea's parliament history, National Assembly spokesman Han Min-soo said the decision came after learning that someone infected with COVID-19 attended a parliamentary forum last Wednesday.
Due to this, a three-day interpellation session that was set to begin today has been postponed indefinitely.
Lawmakers were initially scheduled to ask questions this afternoon to government officials including Prime Minister Chung Se-kyun regarding political and national security issues.
