There are 9,583 Korean Corona19 patients at 00:00 yesterday (29th). On the previous day, 105 people increased, of which 41 were foreign patients, nearly 40%. You work hard on social streets inside, but you shouldn't keep coming in from outside. From April, the government took special measures to mandate quarantine for two weeks for all immigrants entering Korea.

Starting April 1st, regardless of who comes from or from any country, everyone entering Korea must be self-contained for two weeks.

Containment, which was limited to immigrants from Europe and the United States, has been expanded into the world.

Prime Minister Chung Se-gyun said at a meeting of the Central Disaster Safety Countermeasures yesterday, he said it was a measure to effectively block entry into non-critical purposes.

[Jung Se-gyun / Prime Minister: The government has stepped up quarantine for immigrants from Europe and the United States this week, but considering the unprecedented steep global spread, further action is needed.]

This is an extraordinary measure, as corona19 confirmed cases continue to increase rapidly outside the country.

If you are a foreigner without a domestic residence, you will be forced to quarantine for 2 weeks in a facility provided by the government, and you will be responsible for the cost.

Even for the purpose of short-term stay, mandatory quarantine is applied, and in fact, the way for foreign tourists to visit is tightly closed.

If overseas immigrants violate their self-isolation obligations, they must imprison for less than one year or a fine of 10 million won.
