One in five doctors went on strike on March 10, the Ministry of Health and Welfare (MOHW) said.

According to the MOHW’s survey through 254 public health centers, 5,991 out of 28,660 doctor’s offices were closed on March 10.

The highest participation rate was 65.5% among doctors in Seijong-si. The participation rates were 47.4% in Busan, 43% in Kyungsangnam-do, 37.1% in Jeju-do, and 32% in Kangwon-do.

The Korean Medical Association (KMA) wanted at least 30% of its members’ participation rate for success, but only 5 of 17 regions showed the participation rates of 30% or higher.

The participation rate in Seoul was only 14.2%. The participation rate in Jeollabukdo was the lowest, 1.6%.
