Human Rights and ICT amid COVID-19

Professor Changrok Soh at Korea University

"Korea is considered to be successful in the prevention of COVID-19. Excellent medical staff, high-quality national consciousness, and excellent IT technology, which shone in the crisis, are cited as factors for the success of the quarantine. Nevertheless, the problems of human rights and discrimination that our society misses during responding to COVID-19 are never light."
