Gov't boosting financial support for working parents staying home due to COVID-19 outbreak Updated: 2020-04-09 13:32:37 KST

The South Korean government is expanding its financial support for working parents that have to stay home because of the coronavirus outbreak.
In a policy meeting Thursday, finance minister Hong Nam-ki said the government will increase the number of paid days for the so-called "family care leave" from the current five days to ten.
And as for the amount, Hong said it'll be doubled for some families from the current two-hundred-five U.S. dollars to up to a maximum of 4-hundred-11 dollars.
Working parents staying home can apply if their children are eight years old or younger or disabled and under the age of 18.
