Korea University Ansan Hospital (President Woon-young Kim) received an

suspected COVID-19 cases with local hospitals to stem the spread of the virus
started at the end of 2019.
“The public’s interest and awareness of infectious diseases are heightened due
to the spread of COVID-19, so we must fully commit to the infection control,”

overcome this difficult time by establishing a response system for infectious
diseases which includes not just regional hospitals but also public institutions
and private companies.”
