SEOUL, Nov. 24 (Yonhap) -- One member of U.S. Forces Korea (USFK) stationed at its headquarters in the city of Pyeongtaek tested positive for the new coronavirus Tuesday, the U.S. military said.

It is the first case of COVID-19 that USFK has reported at Camp Humphreys since early last month. The latest case brought the total number of new coronavirus cases among USFK-affiliated people to 369, most of whom tested positive upon arrival here from the United States.

"Notifications to those affected, case trace, and team clean operations are occurring now," USFK said in a Facebook post. Details, including the identity of the patient and how the person was infected, were not immediately available.
