The South Korean government is planning to provide telemedicine services for Korean construction workers in foreign countries who are at risk of infection with the coronavirus.
The Central Disaster and Safety Countermeasure Headquarters said Sunday that
workers will be able to report their symptoms, get a diagnosis and even a prescription from doctors here in Korea.
It's a cooperative project between the country's four major hospitals.
So far, three Korean construction workers sent abroad have died from COVID-19.
Around 90 have tested positive.
