Jungkook was the only BTS member who did not test positive for COVID-19 before this incident.

Apparently, the 24-year-old artist took the test after having felt “a slight discomfort in his throat” upon his arrival in the United States. He is currently in Las Vegas.

Then again, Jungkook is not exhibiting any symptoms related to COVID-19 apart from a sore throat.
