The government is likely to introduce electronic bracelets as part of efforts to enhance monitoring of people placed under mandatory two-week self-quarantine.
The government plans to hold a closed meeting chaired by Prime Minister Chung Sye-kyun on Tuesday to discuss a plan to order people in self-isolation to wear such devices as electronic bracelets.
A government official told Yonhap News on Monday that the government is leaning toward adopting the plan to strengthen monitoring of people in self-quarantine.
It will reportedly enforce the move after securing the consent of people who are required to self-quarantine.
The discussion of the new measure comes amid continued violations of the government's self-quarantine rules and related infections.
