On the 29th, the core of the ruling party of South Korea, the Common Democratic Party, revealed that the ruling party plans to ensure 44 million doses of coronavirus vaccines and will prepare a supplementary budget of 1.3 trillion won (about 7.7 billion yuan) for this purpose.
According to a Yonhap News Agency on the 29th, the source said in a telephone interview that the ruling party planned to ensure 44 million doses of coronavirus vaccine. This amount is equivalent to about 85% of the total population of South Korea (51.77 million), which is a significant increase from the government’s recent plan to supply 30 million doses of vaccines at home next year.
A source from the Common Democratic Party said that vaccinating most of the people is an urgent task in response to the epidemic, and it is necessary to include the corresponding budget in the disaster support subsidy program. As a result, with a vaccine budget of 1.3 trillion won, the third round of supplementary budget of emergency disaster support funds will reach 5 trillion won.
