COVID-19 outbreak can occur in any confined, crowded, and close-contact environment. Therefore, gatherings such as social club meetings and religious small group meetings should be postponed and nightlife facilities, bars, karaoke, and PC cafes should be avoided. In daily life, hand washing, mask wearing, and 2 meter distancing should be practiced.

 

With the rise in the number of elderly cases, the number of patients with severe symptoms is also increasing. The elderly need to take particular precautions.

 

- People who are 65 years old or older are advised not to visit enclosed spaces without windows or that are poorly ventilated.

 

- If such an occasion is unavoidable, activities such as eating and singing should be refrained. Masks should be worn and frequent hand washing or sanitizing should be practiced.

 

- KCDC advises elderly people to take good care of any chronic medical conditions they have. They are encouraged to take their prescribed pills and to utilize various means of consulting with healthcare professional regularly, including over-the-phone consultations. When visiting a clinic or hospital, a facemask should be worn.

 

- Regular exercise is also important, including light home exercises and stretching as well as taking a walk regularly at places and times with less foot traffic outside.

 

KCDC expressed gratitude for the 118 recovered people who signed up to participate in the development of COVID-19 plasma therapy and encouraged more eligible people to participate.

 

Plasma therapy requires a large amount of blood as it involves formulating a concentrated form of the antibodies and immunoglobulins from the blood of people who have recovered from COVID-19.

 

People aged 18-64 who have been confirmed with COVID-19, fully recovered, discharged (released) from isolation (at least 14 days ago) are able to participate.

* Participating hospitals: Korea University Ansan Hospital, Keimyung Unviersity Dongsan Hospital, Kyungpook National University Hospital, Daegu Fatima Hospital / For inquiries, dial 1522-6487
