[Notice] Regarding the Trial of Shincheonji Daegu Church
On 3 February, the Daegu District Court acquitted Shincheonji Daegu Church on charges of violating the Infectious Disease Control and Prevention Act.
Shincheonji Daegu Church respects the court’s decision and wishes to sincerely apologize and comfort the local residents who have been affected by COVID-19.
Although there was a large scale outbreak that lasted for a month and a half from 18 February 2020, there have been zero additional confirmed patients as of 2 April 2020 until today.
This was possible due to the close cooperation between the quarantine authorities, medical staff, and residents.
A total of 3,741 congregation members participated in three group blood plasma donations and learned that the only way to overcome COVID-19 is through inclusivity, love, and unity.
Regardless of the outcome of the trial, Shincheonji Daegu Church will continue to take responsibility in matters regarding the COVID-19 outbreak and promises to contribute to society and the eradication of COVID-19
