In the last nine years, more than 5,000 officially recognized patients and more than 1,400 deaths have been reported in the investigation of victims' current conditions. Still, most are suffering from a variety of diseases, and half said they have thought about extreme choices.

This is a report from Jeon Yeon-nam.

Park Jun-suk has been exposed to humidifier disinfectants for over half a year after birth.

I have had asthma since I was a child, and I applied for the damage of the humidifier disinfectant four years ago.

Junseok-kun, who will soon become a middle school student, is worried.

[Park Jun Suk / Humidifier Disinfectant Victims: You can't play sports. I'm worried about it because it's in the corner or it doesn't go well with the kids.]

My mother, who even studied medical books and cared for her son, was hurt by the surrounding eyes.

[Chun Joon-young / Park Jun-suk] Mother: There are people who look like a plague when we go next. Isn't this solved yet? How much do you want? Some people say this.]

Like the family's family, the victims of humidifier disinfectants and their families are threatened not only with physical but also mental health.

The Special Committee on Social Terrorism commissioned the Korean Society of Epidemiology to investigate more than 1,100 families and 863 victims.

Half of the adult victims said, "I've thought about extreme choices."

That's three times higher than the average person.

Eight out of 10 people are chronically depressed.

The range of physical illnesses ranges from the respiratory system to the eyes, nose, skin and digestive system.

The Task Force called for an early revision of the Humidifier Disinfectant Remedy Act, which expands the range of damages limited to lung disease, asthma, toxic hepatitis and bronchiectasis.
