Busan’s Dongbu IKEA store was shut down on Saturday morning by the Busan Health Department early Saturday morning as it was found out a recent coronavirus patient had visited the store.
It’s been reported by local media that a citizen of Daegu, who had recently been confirmed for COVID-19, visited the store for about two hours from 6:55 pm on the 19th.

The city’s health authorities are expected to review further closures after sterilization of the IKEA eastern branch by the 22nd.
The store reopened yesterday.
