Treasure Makers, the fandom name of TREASURE, recently got struck with sad news as the main dancer and vocalist of TREASURE recently tested positive for COVID-19. This was announced yesterday, as of writing this article on the 13th of July.
TREASURE's agency, YG Entertainment, confirmed this by releasing a statement.
Here's what YG Entertainment had to say:
"Hello, this is YG Entertainment.
We would like to inform you that TREASURE's Doyoung has tested positive for COVID-19 today, July 13.
Other TREASURE members aside from Doyoung and the members of the staff have all tested negative. There are no additional confirmed cases, but the TREASURE members and staff plan to continue to self-quarantine.
On the 12th of July, in an examination through a COVID-19 self-test kit ahead of an advertisement shoot, Doyoung received a positive result for the first time.
As a result, all TREASURE members and surrounding staff canceled all scheduled activities immediately and received PCR, polymerase chain reaction, tests, and Doyoung once again tested positive.
We have shared this information with all related personnel in a swift and accurate manner, and we took preemptive measures more intensive than what is advised in the guidelines set by health authorities.
We will continue to prioritize the health of our artists and surrounding staff and provide our full support. We will quickly make an announcement if any changes arise in the future."
Regardless of who a person is, testing positive for COVID-19 is unpredictable nowadays. No one deserves such a fate and hopefully, the other artists, staff, and workers from the entertainment industry, along with netizens and public citizens will not be afflicted with the virus.
Get well soon, Doyoung! Netizens and Treasure Makers from all over the world will be hoping for your swift recovery.
