Daegu Metropolitan City gathered case studies of the methods of overcoming the large coronavirus outbreak that first occurred in Daegu Metropolitan City, the Republic of Korea over a short period of time. The city sent reference materials to the NEAR Secretariat so that they could be distributed among NEAR member regional governments.


After the first case of COVID-19 was confirmed in Daegu Metropolitan City on February 18, it turned into a large pandemic and the number of daily confirmed cases recorded soared to 714. However, the city’s proactive measures such as making face masks compulsory on public transportation and in public facilities, the dedicated efforts of medical staff, and the voluntary actions of citizens led to zero confirmed cases in 53 days since the first outbreak. Such practices were publicized by the media as being best practice in dealing with the virus worldwide.
