[On the Scene] Will the Current Pandemic Period Lead To a New Healthcare System? / Choi Eun Kyung

The Quarterly Changbi 188, Summer 2020

 

Abstract

The pandemic situation, sure to revisit us as a public health crisis, creates issues that are not addressed in the field of general healthcare. Paying attention to this matter, Choi Eun Kyung requests that we consider essential questions related to the readiness of the healthcare system in the era of pandemics, thrust upon us by the Covid19 crisis, such as how much we should sacrifice individual freedoms for the prevention and control of an epidemic, and what we should do to prepare in order not to unilaterally depend on the sacrifices of medical personnel.
