Sana was diagnosed with COVID-19 before TWICE departed for Korea.
On April 26th, JYP Entertainment released a statement confirming that TWICE’s Sana received a positive result after undergoing a PCR test for COVID-19 ahead of TWICE’s flight from Japan back to Korea on the same day.
JYP Entertainment said, “Sana tested negative in two PCR tests on April 16th when she arrived in Japan and April 20th when she was released from quarantine. During their stay in Japan, all TWICE members underwent antigen tests every day, and the test results on all three days of their concert came back negative. Sana has completed the third dose of vaccination, and is currently quarantined and recuperating according to the instructions of Japanese public health authorities.”
Except for Sana, the rest of TWICE members returned to Korea safely on the same day after they tested negative for COVID-19. Previously, from April 23rd to 26th, TWICE held a concert at Tokyo Dome in Japan.
