OUCH!,” SHE WROTE.

Mdm Ho’s main concern centred around the possibility of superspreaders or even one single ultra superspreader, which could result in an uncontrolled spread of the infection.

Regarding the word OUCH, is it correct to add a comma after the exclamation mark?

Thanks!

The use of parentheses does not increase the need for punctuation. The Grammarly people wax lyrical about that.
