Ni-Ki is the sixth ENHYPEN member to test positive for COVID-19

ENHYPEN’s Ni-Ki has tested positive for COVID-19, making him the sixth member of the K-pop group to test positive for the virus. 

ENHYPEN’s agency, BELIFT LAB, announced the news on Sunday, September 5. “Ni-Ki has been diagnosed as positive for COVID-19 while undergoing self-quarantine,” the statement read, according to a translation by Soompi. 

BELIFT LAB also said that Ni-Ki began showing symptoms on Friday, September 3. The 15-year-old member is now preparing for relocation to a treatment facility. 

The news comes three days after it was reported that five ENHYPEN members, Jungwon, Jake, Jay, Heeseung, and Sunghoon, tested positive for COVID-19. Sunoo is the only member to remain negative for the virus. 

The company apologized to fans “for this news of an additional diagnosis of a member following our previous notice.” They also said that they will ensure that all of their artists recover to full health. 

In August, BELIFT LAB confirmed that ENHYPEN is gearing up for a new album, which is set to be released in September. 

As of September 5, South Korea recorded a total of 260,403 COVID-19 cases, after 1,490 new cases were confirmed. – Rappler.com
