Myongji Hospital to provide healthcare support for Koreans in Indonesia
Myongji Hospital will provide healthcare services for Koreans living in Indonesia to help them better cope with the Covid-19 pandemic and manage their overall health.
The number of confirmed coronavirus patients has recently reached 3.5 million in the Southeast Asian country.
Myongji Hospital Chairman Lee Wang-jun (right) signed an agreement with Korean Association in Indonesia President Park Jae-han (on-screen) to provide healthcare services, including Covid-19 treatment, for Koreans living in Indonesia on Wednesday.
Under an agreement signed between the hospital and Korean Association in Indonesia, about 25,000 Koreans in Indonesia will receive remote treatment and health consultation and management services using various smart or wearable devices based on a mobile application developed by MJ Virtual Care Center.
Koreans in Indonesia can also get health check-ups at Myongji Hospital, located in Goyang, just north of Seoul, when they return to Korea.
Indonesia confirmed an additional 1,587,955 Covid-19 patients and 43,541 deaths between June and July, bringing the total caseload to nearly 3.5 million.
According to the statistics provided by the Korean embassy in Indonesia, 344 Koreans were infected by the virus, and 20 of them have died. Also, 84 people were transported back to Korea by air ambulance or chartered plane.
"The largest number of overseas Koreans with severe disease who visited Myongji Hospital via air ambulance were from Indonesia," Myongji Hospital Chairman Lee Wang-jun said. "The agreement with the Korean Association in Indonesia, which needs the most medical support among many Korean community members who use the MJ Virtual Care Center worldwide, seems a little late, but we will do our best to provide the necessary medical services."
Korean Association in Indonesia President Park Jae-han also said, "Indonesia, which has the 14th-largest number of Covid-19 cases in the world, has a relatively poor medical environment where mild patients develop severe cases living without adequate medical support."
Park added that Myongji Hospital's rapid diagnosis and treatment would prevent patients from developing severe symptoms through the virtual care service.
Myongji Hospital's healthcare service for overseas Koreans has been expanded to Southeast Asia, following Atlanta and Hawaii in the U.S., Guatemala, Middle East, and Africa.
