JEJU, April 10 (Korea Bizwire) — The operation of the Jeju International Airport’s walk-thru testing center, which is being operated to prevent the inflow of new coronavirus cases, is being shared with cities around the world.
The Jeju provincial government said Thursday it will regularly post its own COVID-19 response policy on the United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG) website to share with member cities.
As COVID-19 spread around the world, Jeju was pushed forward when local governments from countries around the world asked South Korean local governments to share the details of their response to the coronavirus outbreak.
Last Tuesday, the province introduced the Jeju Airport walk-thru testing center, which is operated for rapid sample testing and blocking the inflow of COVID-19 into the province.
According to the special admission process, the introduction details the operational situation, ranging from filling in a questionnaire at the airport’s arrival hall to collecting samples at the walk-through screening treatment set up in the airport’s parking lot, and monitoring arrivals.
The information has now been disseminated to some 250,000 local governments in 140 countries and 175 local council member cities.
In the future, the province plans to post countermeasures that have been cited as prime examples in the country, such as special admission procedures for visitors to foreign countries and guidance on emergency disaster text messages.
