Amid protest of self-owned businessmen against the government's extension of toughened social distancing, Korea Disease Control and Prevention Agency signed a deal with Pfizer for edible COVID-19 pills. The protestors are not satisfied with 5 million won ($4,154) compensation because that is not enough to cover their loss caused by limited business hours or closure. Instead, they urged the government 1) lifting the quarantine pass 2) lifting limited business hours and 3) revision of the Compensation Act. On December 22, large number of them gathered on Gwanghwamun Plaza and some of them shaved their heads in gesture of their resistance. Meanwhile, COVID-19 pills Paxlovid is to cross the Pacific Ocean to Korea during this month and detailed plans for affected people and distribution are being discussed. The Agency has signed a contract to buy Paxlovid that can accommodate around 604,000 people but is working to increase the number to 1 million and 4,000. <PowerKorea>
