As the number of confirmed foreign patients entering Korea amid the exhaustion of doctors because of the corona19 virus infection, the President of the Korean Society of Infectious Diseases appealed to ban foreigners from entering the country.
On the 26th, Chairman Baek Kyung-ran of the Korean Society of Infectious Diseases (Professor of Infectious Medicine, Samsung Seoul Hospital) asked his government to stop foreigners from entering the country, saying, “There is not enough first line to treat foreigners.”
President Baek said, “I want you to ban foreigners from entering Korea anymore.
“Other countries have already blocked Korea. “Please ban it based on the reciprocity that the government claims.” In the meantime, she delivered the voice of the frontline doctor.
“A foreigner is hospitalized. The nurses asked for an interpreter and bought an interpreter. If you are connected to the Central Defense Countermeasures Committee, please stop foreigners. I'm tired now. ”
According to the Central Quarantine and Prevention Headquarters, 57 of the 104 new confirmed Koreans confirmed during the day of the previous day (25th) were from overseas. Among the cumulative confirmers in Korea, 284 cases were foreign inflows.
The government remains unchanged on the ban on foreign entry. The Blue House briefed on this day that it praised our government from abroad for not blocking foreign entry. Spokesperson Kang Min-suk, a spokesman for the Blue House, said during the briefing, “I think that the decision of South Korea, where Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is not taking measures to ban foreigners from China and abroad, was the right choice.” The news that conveyed this fact became the main article on the portal site.
More and more countries prohibit or restrict Korean entry. According to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the number of countries and territories that imposed bans and restrictions on immigration to South Korea increased to 180 at 10 am that day. 93% of the United Nations member states (193 countries) took action.
On the other hand, in social networking networks (SNS) including Facebook, writings comparing American doctors with Korean doctors are spreading rapidly, centering on doctors.
The author of this article said, “The reason for the early failure of the United States is the vested interests of American doctors. American doctors, like Korean doctors, test hundreds and don't. He said, “I test it without difficulty, and I do not give any medical treatment to myself.” Korean doctors set a new record in the world by testing coronas, and American doctors cannot believe it. “
He said, “The Korean doctors treat their bodies as they are thrown away and maintain this level of corona mortality.” .
A doctor who retired from medical school recently said, “If doctors are not cast iron, and the health of first-line doctors is exhausted, there is a problem with quarantine.” Please help. ” He added, “I hope that blocking overseas patients will be approached in this regard, and I hope that the mind and body will not stimulate the tired doctor.”
