Poland’s Defence Ministry stated that approximately one-third of military hospital beds had been allocated for Covid-19 patients. Mariusz Błaszczak, the Defence Minister, engaged in a meeting with military hospitals to enhance military health service support to fight Covid-19. Earlier, the minister stated that Polish Armed Forces were extending their support to almost 250 Covid-19 testing points.

Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, the German Defence Minister, has self-quarantined after possibly coming into contact with someone who tested positive for the SAR-CoV-2 virus about eight days ago. The ministry said that while she had tested negative for coronavirus, she had decided to isolate herself for the next six days.

About 18 United States Forces Korea (USFK) affiliated members tested positive for the Sar-CoV-2 virus, after reaching South Korea between October 25 and 29. Nine service members and a dependent arrived from the US on October 25, 28 and 29, while four others, three dependents, and a contractor arrived on October 27 and 28.
