South Korean authorities were looking for a 41-year-old Chinese man who went on the run after flying in the previous day, testing positive and being taken to a quarantine facility.

, the number of Chinese tourists flying into South Korea and other popular vacation destinations in the region surged. Concern over high infection rates in China and a lack of clear data from Beijing about its epidemic saw Seoul and other capitals quickly impose new restrictions, demanding once again that Chinese travelers show a recent negative COVID test.

The man arrived Tuesday at Incheon International Airport, outside Seoul, and then tested positive for the coronavirus, which is once. He and other COVID-positive patients from the airport were driven to a hotel quarantine facility on Yeongjong Island, near the airport. The man's motive for going on the lam wasn't clear. Chinese nationals placed in quarantine in South Korea are charged about $8 for their first PCR test and $150 per day spent in a quarantine facility, plus any further medical expenses as they don't typically have South Korean health insurance coverage.

That's the reason, all Chinese travelling anywhere abroad should be tested. He fled, because in China, he would have been put in his house, and doors welded!

🤣🤣🤣did you guys also looking for your own positive cases?

Treat the Communist little bastard the same as His Country treats people. then send him home in a nice black bag COD to the Chinese Communist Government. Democracies need to ban all travellers from Communist Countries. They're not citizens of the planet, they're Godless

USA has absolutely no ability to do this!

Remember when everyone called trump racist for putting restrictions on travels to and from China…
