[사회]Individual and free travel are not allowed… “Risk of mutation spread even if controlled”

[앵커]

After getting vaccinated, you can travel abroad from next month, but there are many restrictions.

Individuals or small groups are not allowed, and private events such as family visits are not permitted outside of the activities listed in the travel package.

It is a measure to put as much administrator control as possible, but even if this happens, it is pointed out that the risk of spreading the mutant virus will be greater than it is now.

If you have been vaccinated according to the set number of times and have been vaccinated for two weeks, you can travel abroad from next month.

Proof of vaccination is required, so those under the age of 18 or pregnant women who cannot be vaccinated are excluded.

Even those who have been vaccinated are not able to move around freely as they used to.

You cannot go abroad alone or in small groups,

Only group tours over a certain size are allowed.

Even at this time, other than the activities included in the travel package, personal activities such as meeting family and friends are prohibited.

If a violation of quarantine rules is detected, travel agencies will be sanctioned, such as canceling travel product approval and limiting future approval applications.

Even with this management, the risk of being exposed to the mutated virus is inevitably greater than it is now.

This is because the vaccine is not 100% effective, and even those who have been vaccinated cannot be relieved because of their low mutation resistance.

It is also a matter of how far the type of vaccine that an inbound person entering Korea from abroad will be allowed to receive.

The government plans to decide whether to deal with Russian or Chinese vaccine recipients that are not licensed in Korea in consultation with the other country.
