The government was going to announce strengthened quarantine measures tomorrow (26th), but canceled the schedule a while ago. We discussed ways to expand the quarantine pass to teenagers, but could not reach a final conclusion. However, the government’s position is that we will not immediately stop our daily recovery and return to the old social distancing.

More details will be provided by Reporter Park Soo-jin.

The topic of the Daily Recovery Support Committee held this morning was the expansion of quarantine passes.

It is said that the target of the quarantine pass should be expanded as a minimum measure to break the recent worsening trend.

In particular, there were many opinions that the quarantine pass should be applied to children and adolescents under the age of 18, who are the exceptions.

There was also an opinion that the quarantine pass should be applied to restaurants and cafes so that only those who have completed the vaccination can use it, but it is known that there was a lot of opposition from the self-employed and small business groups participating in the committee.

[김기홍/자영업자비상대책위원회 공동대표 : 방역패스를 적용시켰을 때 감소되는 매출분에 대한 이제 손실 보상안을 마련을 해야 되고요. (보상안이) 패키지처럼 같이 발표가 돼야지 방역을 먼저 얘기를 하고 그다음에 보상을 논하는 건 맞지 않다는 거죠.]

However, at the meeting, it was reported that the Ministry of Strategy and Finance was negative about the additional loss compensation opinion.

It was found that there was no discussion about triggering an emergency plan in the metropolitan area, limiting business hours for multi-use facilities, or reducing the number of people using it.

The government is also cautious about intensive measures to suspend normal recovery and strengthen social distancing again.

[권덕철/보건복지부 장관 : 아직은 그렇게까지 저희가 거리두기를 더 전면적으로 더 강화를 한다든지 또 혹은 현재의 일상회복 단계를 멈춘다든지 그런 상황을 검토하고 있지는 않고요.]

The government canceled the plan to announce the strengthened quarantine measures tomorrow a while ago.

This seems to be because there was no consensus and there was no effective plan to come up with an additional one.
