Government to support Chinese students amid coronavirus scare

Government to support Chinese students amid coronavirus scare

"중국인 유학생 관리 사각지대 없도록 최선"

Local universities are taking various measures to halt the spread of the new coronavirus, including the separation of Chinese students deemed at risk of the viral disease. Our Jongmin Kim reports

Despite an apparent slowdown in the outbreak of the novel coronavirus, Gwangju and Jeonnam’s health authorities are still on alert against additional virus cases and further spread across the regions after some 2,000 Chinese students who are enrolled in local universities are planning to return to Korea by the end of February or the beginning of March.

Local universities are scrambling to find ways to accommodate Chinese students who are returning to the country for the spring semester.

Under the decision announced by Jeonnam National University Global Residence, all Chinese students who have visited China's Hubei Province, the epicenter of the coronavirus, in the past month or who have been to other parts of China in recent weeks, will be sent to one dormitory building on the university's Yongbong Campus.

Honam University, which has the largest number of Chinese students of schools in Gwangju, will run shuttle bus services from Incheon airport to Gwangju for students entering the country from today.   

The Chinese students, who will be required to stay in individual rooms, should be provided with packaged meals, daily necessities, and hygiene products. The university also installed two thermal imaging cameras at the entrance of its dorm to screen all residents.
