 Expand restrictions? South Korean MP: China did not restrict South Korean entry at mers


Song Yongji was asked by the host when he participated in the MBC radio program, according to South Koreas Central Daily on June 6. Whats his opinion on the current situation that some people in South Korea call for expanding the entry restrictions related to the new coronavirus to areas outside Hubei Province of China. Song Yongji said that at the time of the outbreak of the Middle East respiratory syndrome, China also did not impose entry restrictions on South Koreans.

Song Yongji said that at the time of the mers outbreak, South Korea was a serious epidemic area with the number of confirmed patients second only to Saudi Arabia, with 38 deaths. At that time, another South Korean patient came to China and returned safely after receiving treatment from the Chinese government, which we need to consider..

Song Yongji said that at present, South Korea does not take entry restriction measures for all Chinese, but for Hubei Province, China, where the new coronavirus epidemic is serious, to restrict all foreigners who have visited this area within 14 days, and to take isolation measures for the corresponding native people. I believe China can understand this reasonable measure of South Korea..

On February 3, South Korean President Wen zaiyin said that restricting the entry of foreigners who had visited Hubei was a helpless act to protect the national security of South Korea. In this regard, song Yongji stressed that as president Wen zaiyin said, it is in the interests of South Korea and all mankind to avoid fuelling the national antipathy of the two countries and instigating panic, and to jointly respond to the epidemic through mutual confidence and cooperation and sharing information..

The SPD is currently the largest party in South Koreas parliament, and Wen zaiyin is also a member of the party.
