Moon Orders Thorough Post-Disaster Management After Deadly Hospital Fire

President Moon Jae-in has ordered related government ministries to do their best in post-fire management after dozens of people were killed in a hospital fire on Friday.

According to his press secretary, Moon first gave the order to Minister of the Interior and Safety Kim Boo-kyum during a telephone call during which Kim briefed the president on the situation at the accident site. 

Kim said the ministry cannot handle the situation alone and in response, President Moon told him to ask for assistance from other government organizations, if necessary. 

Moon then called Health and Welfare Minister Park Neung-hoo to consider relocating those injured to adjacent cities such as Busan, Changwon and Gimhae, if medical centers in Miryang cannot provide them with sufficient medical services. Moon also asked Park to do his best to identify those who were killed and injured. 

At least 37 people are dead and more than 140 injured after a fire broke out early Friday morning in the first floor emergency room of Sejong Hospital in Miryang.
