As I continued to tell you, as the number of patients in critical condition is rapidly increasing, the number of patients waiting due to a shortage of hospital beds is increasing, and in addition, there is no immediate solution. It would not be an exaggeration to say that we should look at the situation. In this situation, the government postponed the announcement of quarantine measures scheduled for today (26th). We discussed ways to strengthen quarantine, but there was no consensus.

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

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

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

There were also some opinions 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.

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 the facility.

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 일상 회복 단계를 멈춘다든지 그런 상황을 검토하고 있지는 않고요.]

The government postponed the announcement of measures to strengthen quarantine measures scheduled this morning.

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