The Seoul Metropolitan Government (SMG) is focusing on the quick recovery of discharged COVID-19 patients by providing four-week health management services and self-care health kits.
In partnership with 21 autonomous districts, the SMG organized a health care team for discharged COVID-19 patients in each public health center for the physical and mental recovery of those patients.
Targets are 1,000 citizens who live in the 21 autonomous districts among those who were discharged from living treatment centers of the SMG or an autonomous district. Application is available via QR code on the guidebooks received when they entered the community treatment centers, and applicants will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
To 1,000 applicants, the health care team of the public health center will offer health care services via phone counseling once a week over four weeks.
Subjects can receive the health kit within a week from the point of application. The health kit comprises 28 mission cards, and is prepared to be helpful for physical and mental recovery through advice from experts.
The SMG will continue to reinforce the capability of hands-on workers, monitor the counseling cases, and provide experts’ advice to keep offering substantial health care services. In addition, the SMG will decide whether it will continue or expand the project through evaluating the effects of the pilot project.
