Over 600,000 people have been administered with their first dose of COVID-19 in Korea, after 20 days have passed since the country kicked off inoculation. The number of eligible recipients for Q2, announced by the government, is 14 times that of Q1! Health authorities also need to tackle the increasing number of post-inoculation adverse responses. We delve into the details as the country unrolls its full-fledged fight between the virus and antibodies.
Although COVID-19 vaccines are being inculcated in countries around the world, skepticism surrounding the efficacy of the vaccines still remains. anti-vaccine movements in France and the spread of fakes news are the proof of this social anxiety. As Korea is moving on to the third week of vaccine program, how does people think about inoculation in the country? We look at the public’s perception of COVID-19 vaccine.
The continued spread of COVID-19 is leading to an increase in medical waste including used syringes, dressing, protective suits and etc. We visited the National Medican Center to see how the discarded medical wastes are being treated.
