In this situation, the government will announce the comprehensive quarantine measures tomorrow (29th). A plan to expand the application of the quarantine pass is being considered, but some are also demanding strong measures such as strengthening the distance.

Reporter Park Soo-jin pointed out several possibilities.

Members of the quarantine and medical subcommittee of the Daily Recovery Support Committee held a closed meeting for over two hours today and discussed measures to strengthen quarantine.

The target of the quarantine pass, expansion of facilities, and limitation of validity period are being reviewed.

It is known that some members ordered strong measures to temporarily restrict the number of gatherings and business hours, saying that it is difficult to stop the current spread by just expanding the quarantine pass.

The government believes that expanding the quarantine pass or strengthening the distance can reduce the overall travel volume, but it is difficult to prevent the rapid increase in the number of severe cases and deaths, especially among the elderly.

Therefore, while actively encouraging the elderly to receive booster vaccinations, they are focusing more on measures to reduce the movement and contact of the elderly until the effect of booster vaccination appears.

Therefore, a plan to include facilities frequently used by the elderly in the target of the quarantine pass is also being considered.

If the quarantine pass is expanded, the self-employed and small business groups are demanding compensation for the decrease in sales, which is something the government is struggling with.

The government’s measures to strengthen quarantine will be announced tomorrow afternoon right after the quarantine inspection meeting presided over by President Moon Jae-in.
