The government will provide financial assistance to people quarantined amid the coronavirus outbreak.
The government said on Saturday it will provide up to W1.23 million a month each to people who have been in quarantine for more than 14 days (US$1=W1,192). The amount will depend on the number of family members.
Foreign nationals living in Korea and those who are self-quarantined will also be eligible. However, those who have taken paid leave from their work will be ineligible.
The government will start accepting applications for the aid on Feb. 17.
