As cases of COVID-19 are on the rise again worldwide, South Korea has decided to toughen its quarantine procedures for overseas arrivals.
Kim Gang-lip, first chief coordinator at the Central Disaster Management Headquarters, on Friday announced the government aims to evaluate every two weeks the situation in each country and analyze related risks.
Based on the reviews, Kim said the government plans to systematically categorize countries as either targeted for strengthened quarantine measures, under observation, or capable of expanding exchanges.
The government has been implementing enhanced quarantine procedures such as visa restrictions and reducing international flights to minimize the influx of patients from countries experiencing a sharp rise in coronavirus cases.
