3rd disaster support fund, named as a support fund for small businesses suffering from Corona, will be paid from the 11th, next Monday.
3 million won is paid to places such as karaoke and health clubs, which could not be opened due to distance, and 2 million won to places where the owner could not receive all the guests freely, such as restaurants and cafes.
And regardless of this, if the sales decrease, you will receive 1 million won.
In addition, 500,000 won is paid to specially employed workers and freelancers.
As it is a very difficult time, it would be nice to receive such government subsidies, but voices of dissatisfaction come out from the field.
Reporter Jeong Seong-jin heard the story.

Schools and swimming classes are prohibited, but if there are more than 5 employees, they will not be eligible for application because they are not small business owners.
[Swimming pool owner: I think that if you ordered the ban on gatherings correctly, you should share the rewards for that.
It's a little frustrating, too.]
It's not easy to immediately confirm the decrease in income, etc. It's for quick support, but it's a pity that we don't even try to come up with a countermeasure.
[Choehyeonsu / Korea Institute for Health and Social Research Fellow: I need a grasp on (due to the corona) income or fluctuations in revenues to be yelled at great hurry to prepare for (income grasp) infrastructure, there is a little late -
is already in politics Discussions on the payment of the 4th disaster subsidies have begun, and as the polarization is increasing due to the prolonged corona, there is a strong voice that more sophisticated support measures should be prepared.
