South Korea: Parliament Shuts Down After Journalist Tests Positive for Coronavirus

Citizens walk in front of a general hospital in Seoul on Aug. 26 2020 Doctors strike in South Korea amid virus spike

In a statement, KMA said the medical community was always open to all possibilities in talks with the government, and that the doctors did not want to have to strike.

The government's healthcare reform plan includes a proposal to increase the admission quotas at medical schools by 4,000 over the next 10 years.

Thousands of teaching hospital doctors, trainee doctors and private practice physicians began a three-day strike on Wednesday to express solidarity with the intern and resident doctors.

But the Korea Medical Association said on Friday it plans to organise a nationwide strike starting September 7, for an indefinite period, unless the government drops its reforms.

The Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC) reported 371 brand-new coronavirus cases as of midnight Thursday, bringing the nation's overall to 19,077, consisting of 316 deaths.

In a joint briefing held at the government complex in Seoul by the Ministry of Health and Welfare, the Ministry of Justice and the National Police Agency, Vice Health Minister Kim Ganglip said the extension and seeking of legal action were "inevitable" to "safeguard people's lives and safety", as the resurgence of the coronavirus was posing a great threat to public safety and doctors' walkout added more trouble to already strained hospitals around the country.

Coffee shops, some of which have been identified as hotspots in the outbreak, are restricted to takeout and delivery services.

The South Korean government says about 3,500 medical institutions were closed on Wednesday, the first day of the strike. Restaurants, snack bars and bakeries are not allowed to offer on-site dining between the hours of 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. The striking doctors have volunteered their services at temporary testing centers to help with the outbreak.

"Phase Three social distancing is the choice of last resort given the economic and social ripple effect", Prime Minister Chung Sye-kyun said during a government meeting.

Earlier today, Seoul authorities bought the closure of most schools in the capital and surrounding locations.

South Korea reported 441 new virus cases on Thursday, its highest daily tally since March 7. We hope that we have succeeded by giving you the full details and information.
