While Korea’s response to the Corona virus is the focus of attention worldwide, it was confirmed that the medical faculty who proposed the drive-through method that enables virus testing inside cars is an alumnus of Hanyang University Graduate School of Public Health.
Kim Jin-yong, director of infectious internal medicine at Incheon Medical Center, was in charge of treating the first confirmed patient of COVID-19. Director Kim is also from the first graduating class of the Hanyang University Graduate School of Public Health upon it’s opening. Kim's major is in the field of medical science and health statistics.
According to an article by the Hankook Daily on February 27, Chilgok Gyeongbuk National University Hospital first installed the container on February 23 and introduced the drive-through screening clinic before other districts. This started from his proposal at a conference to "Create selective clinics in a wide playground to protect the safety of both patients and medical staff while increasing the speed of examination and medical care." The installation is known to have been set up after Kwon Ki-tae, a professor of infectious internal medicine at Chilgok Gyeongbuk National University Hospital, heard about the idea and proceeded an internal discussion.
Meanwhile, the number of drive-through method screening clinics nationwide reached 70 as of March 16.
