Officials in South Korea have sentenced a man to four months in prison after he broke lockdown rules.
The 27-year-old had just two days to go until the end of his 14-day isolation, but he was found to have left mandatory self quarantine on separate occasions.
LA Times reporter Victoria Kim said the country is getting increasingly strict with quarantine violations after it saw its highest jump in cases in weeks.
The Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC) says it confirmed 40 new cases up to midnight on Tuesday.
At least 36 cases have been linked to the Coupang warehouse, which was closed for disinfection on Monday.
All 3,600 people who work there are being tested for the virus.
The country has been widely praised for its response to coronavirus.
Earlier this month UK deputy chief scientific adviser Professor Dame Angela McLean said ministers should look to South Korea as a “fine example” and emulate their policy.

Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
