The Government of South Korea has tightened quarantine measures for Uzbek citizens entering the country.
According to the South Korean Embassy in Uzbekistan, additional quarantine measures include:
- Higher temperature standards – only below 37.3 degrees allowed (previously 37.5);
- Examination of the citizen and people accompanying him in the quarantine zone (if symptoms are present);
- Examination of all foreign nationals at a temporary stay facility (if no symptoms are present).
After the examination, if the PCR test is positive, the citizen is sent to a clinic or treatment center.
If the result is negative, foreign citizens with short-term stay are sent to a quarantine institution, while those who came to stay langer – to home quarantine, after confirmation of the place of self-isolation.
It was previously reported that the Embassy had introduced a consular verification system to confirm PCR certificates for coronavirus.
