A medical worker sorts rapid antigen test kits at a screening clinic for coronavirus tests in Anseong, 77 kilometers south of Seoul, on Jan. 26, 2022, as South Korea began to implement a new virus response system designed to minimize disruptions and focus on reducing critical cases and deaths. Under the regime, local hospitals and clinics will administer tests and treat patients, and rapid antigen tests will replace polymerase chain reaction tests at testing sites, except for those aged over 60 or high-risk groups.
