91 'public relief' hospitals designated 

in S. Korea amid COVID-19 outbreak




This is Myongji Hospital in Goyang, Gyeonggi-do Province.
Recently, a separate clinic was set up outside the hospital's main building to receive patients with respiratory symptoms,.. such as coughing and sore throat.

"Even if they didn't come into contact with a infected patient, or show symptoms, those with a fever or respiratory issues will not be allowed inside. They will be treated at the 'public relief' clinic."

Myongji Hospital is one of the 91 designated public relief hospitals set up throughout South Korea to prevent respiratory patients who may have contracted COVID-19 and general patients from crossing paths.
Separating patients allows the general public to visit the hospital without having to worry about being exposed to the virus.
Among the 91 hospitals designated as public relief hospitals, four are university hospitals, 68 are general hospitals, and 19 are clinics.
However, those who have a recent history of traveling abroad, or have been to Daegu or the Gyeongsangbuk-do Province and show respiratory symptoms are sent to a different specialty area, known as the "selective clinic".
Among the 91 public relief hospitals designated throughout the nation, 36 cater to such patients.
In order to meet the growing demand, the government is looking to designate more public relief hospitals nationwide.
Those who wish to find their nearest public relief hospital can visit the Ministry of Health and Welfare's website.
