    Starting today, any Seoul resident who wants to get tested for COVID-19 can apply for free testing even if they don’t have symptoms. The Seoul city government has designated 7 municipal hospitals as places for free tests as a preemptive move to prevent further cluster infections in the community. Previously, testing was limited to those who’ve been in contact with confirmed patients or have visited infected areas while also having symptoms of the virus. Citizens will have to apply for the test online before visiting the hospitals.
