Three members of BTS test positive for COVID-19
Three members of BTS, the South Korean pop band, have been diagnosed with COVID-19.
Bighit Music, the seven-member band’s management agency, announced this in a statement this weekend.
It said RM and Jin were diagnosed yesterday evening while Suga, another member, tested positive on Friday.
The agency said all three members who tested positive had taken their second jabs earlier in August.
It said RM has exhibited no symptoms while Jin had a light fever and is undergoing self-treatment at home.
Big Hit said Suga also has no symptoms and is administering self-care at home in accordance with guidelines.
It is understood that RM had tested negative after returning from a personal event in the US earlier in December.
He was later diagnosed with the virus ahead of his scheduled release from self-quarantine.
It is also understood that, upon his recent return to South Korea, Jin underwent PCR tests twice and was negative.
He later reported flu-like symptoms yesterday afternoon before he took the PRC test that came back positive.
