I just told you that if bed assignment is delayed, seriously ill patients can be at risk. Most of those confirmed in nursing homes or nursing homes are over 60 years old, so they cannot be treated at home or in a living treatment center.

I just told you that if bed assignment is delayed, seriously ill patients can be at risk. Most of those confirmed in nursing homes or nursing homes are over 60 years old, so they cannot be treated at home or in a living treatment center.

Next is reporter Kim Deok-hyun.

It is a nursing hospital in Bucheon, Gyeonggi-do.

After the first confirmed case on the 10th, the entire ward was quarantined two days later, but the number of infected people increased to 67.

The confirmed patients are elderly people over the age of 60, so after infection, they need to monitor their symptoms more closely and transfer them to another hospital as soon as possible.

However, the number of medical personnel in the hospital to be responsible for this has been reduced by half due to confirmation or isolation.

[부천 요양병원 입원 환자 가족 : 거기 그 안은 지금 아비규환이라고. 저희 할머니 지금 90세도 넘으시고 호흡기도 불안정하시고. 거기에서 그냥 돌아가시게 놔두실 건지….]

Some patients are already deteriorating, so the hospital is rushing to transfer them, but they are often rejected.

[부천 요양병원 관계자 : 당장 급하신 분들 10분 정도 되는데 3일 전부터 계속 말씀드리고 있었어요. 상태 안 좋아서 빨리 이송돼야 한다. ‘병상이 너무 없다’ 이렇게만 말씀하시고 이송은 안 되고 있는….]

The only hope left is a nursing hospital dedicated to infectious diseases, which is the only two hospitals in the metropolitan area.

However, the beds here are also nearly 85% full.

The remaining beds cannot be used right away due to various disinfection procedures after the patient is discharged.

Currently, there are over 50 nursing hospitals and facilities nationwide that are quarantined in the entire ward due to the group infection.

The government plans to make the most of the beds in the non-metropolitan area and quickly prepare beds at four additional designated nursing hospitals for infectious diseases in the metropolitan area.
