Severe stomach escalation… Government failed to conclude strengthening quarantine measures

by news dir
On the 26th, the government decided to announce the Corona 19 quarantine measures to respond to the recent surge in patients with severe cases and the shortage of hospital beds, but it was reversed. The quarantine authorities implied that social distancing measures could be implemented, saying, “All possibilities are open.”

Even among experts, opinions on the measures to strengthen quarantine are divided. There are opinions that social distancing should be implemented even now, considering the utilization rate of intensive care beds, while others say that social distancing should not be implemented for those who have completed vaccination.

On the 25th, the Central Accident Management Countermeasure Headquarters (heavy water version) said, “Based on the discussion with the Daily Recovery Support Committee, it is a situation that requires further discussion with related ministries, industries and related organizations.”

Sohn Young-rae, head of the social strategy division, said, “There is no announcement of measures to strengthen quarantine on the 26th. There are still many things to be discussed.” Some even suggested that the Blue House might announce its own quarantine response plan next week.

Even in the morning of that day, Director Sohn said, “On the 26th, the overall (results of the quarantine response discussion) will be discussed at the Central Safety and Disaster Response Headquarters and then announced at a briefing.” However, Joongsubon said that it was decided to postpone the release date only 7 hours later, around 6 pm.

The four policy directions of the current emergency plan are △Expansion of quarantine passes (restriction of those not vaccinated) △Strengthening restrictions on private gatherings (social distancing) △Protection of vulnerable facilities △Emergency securing of hospital beds. It is already being implemented. If the central government takes measures to strengthen the restrictions on private gatherings after discussion, in fact, all measures corresponding to the emergency plan will be implemented.
