South Korean defence minister apologises over Covid-19 outbreak on destroyer during anti-piracy mission

by Gabriel Dominguez & Dae Young Kim

South Korean Defence Minister Suh Wook has issued an apology for the military's failure to prevent a Covid-19 outbreak among personnel of the Republic of Korea Navy's (RoKN's) Cheonghae Anti-Piracy Unit during a mission in waters off eastern Africa.

The Yonhap News Agency reported on 20 July that the apology came a day after tests showed that 247 personnel (or 82%) of the 301-member unit aboard Chungmugong Yi Sun-sin (KDX-II)-class destroyer Munmu Daewang (DDH 976) had been infected, amid growing criticism of the Ministry of National Defense (MND) in Seoul for excluding the unit from its vaccination campaign.
