ENHYPEN's agency, BELIFT LAB, previously announced that Jungwon, Heeseung, Jay, Jake and Sunghoon tested positive for COVID-19. Now on September 5, the agency announced that another member of ENHYPEN tested positive for the virus. The 6th member being Ni-ki.

BELIFT LAB's statement regarding ENHYPEN's Ni-ki is as follows:



ENHYPEN member Ni-ki has been diagnosed as positive for COVID-19 while undergoing self-quarantine.

Ni-ki had entered into self-quarantine in separate quarters and closely monitored his condition with daily self-testing as well as PCR testing; he began showing symptoms of coughing on Friday, September 3, and on the following day was diagnosed as positive for COVID-19.

Following directives from health authorities he is preparing for relocation to a treatment facility and is showing light symptoms.

It is with the deepest sense of regret that we offer our apology to our fans for this news of an additional diagnosis of a member following our previous notice. Our company will do our utmost to ensure the artists can recover to full health. In addition, we will continue to cooperate with requests and instructions from government health authorities.

Thank you."
