This is Kim In-chul, the President of HUFS. Despite the grave situation brought upon by COVID-19, HUFS is doing its best to take preventive measures for the safety of students, professors, and administrators of HUFS.
The number of confirmed cases has increased in comparison to the past few months, but comparing the rates and number of cases we can see that Korea’s prevention measures and medical care system are up to the standards of advanced nations. We should feel a sense of pride as we continue on to wisely overcome this situation.
The STAY STRONG campaign is a relay public service campaign started by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Mar. 2020 to keep the spirits high during the time of COVID-19.
