Critics point out that the third wave of coronavirus infections (Corona 19) is spreading uncontrollably as the government has missed the timing of quarantine measures.
Although the government had already met the 2.5 level standard for social distance raising last month in terms of the number of new confirmed cases, the government announced the upgrade of the level on June 6, two weeks later. In addition, controversy over the effectiveness of the plan has been raised as the 2.5th level of distance in the Seoul metropolitan area (Seoul, Gyeonggi and Incheon), which are classified as one area, is set to 8th, three days later than the Seoul Metropolitan Government (5th). The government hurriedly decided to strengthen its epidemiological investigation as the spread was not detected, 안전놀이터 but analysts say even this is a belated response that missed the “golden time.”
According to the Central Anti-Disaster Headquarters, the number of newly confirmed Corona 19 patients stood at 615 as of midnight on the 7th, continuing the 600 mark for two consecutive days. Of the total, 422 were confirmed to be confirmed in the Seoul metropolitan area, marking the fifth consecutive day that the number of people in the metropolitan area stood at 400 In particular, the daily average number of newly confirmed patients in Seoul between April 29 and May 5 has increased 13 times over the past six weeks.
The surge in confirmed cases in the Seoul metropolitan area is partly due to citizens’ lax quarantine attitude, but it is also largely due to the government’s delayed response one step at a time. “The number of confirmed cases has already started to soar a month ago, and it is doubtful whether it will be effective to upgrade the distance level now,” experts said. “It is highly likely that the number of confirmed cases will exceed 1,000 next week.”
Moon Jae-in, the president is “available resources, such as civil servants, military and police full epidemiological investigation of the Seoul metropolitan area to empower.” and that of screening clinics at night and a holiday.Significantly expand aggressively pursue a rapid antigen testing and use of the operation, ordered, but a belated measures even as can be assessed. This is because there are already confirmed cases and asymptomatic infections that cannot be identified. “The situation could have changed if measures such as strengthening epidemiological investigations had come out a week earlier,” an official from the medical community said. “It is regrettable that the government’s countermeasures have been delayed one by one recently.”
