ABSTRACT

In 2015, MERS disaster broke in South Korea and China, which posed a threat to the public safety of the two countries. In 2003, Korean government has taken effective measures to deal with SARS disaster, but the response taken by Korean government for MERS disaster in 2015 were not appropriate to cause large losses and public concern, whereas Chinese government has taken effective measures to minimize the loss of MERS to the public. This study analyzes the disaster management and medical health disaster management system in China, then analyzes the disaster response process to MERS trough five aspects in Guangdong Province, China. And we compare the disaster response measures between China and South Korea. In conclusion, we suggest that disaster response should involve joint participation of central government, local government, and citizens since these three parties are indispensable for timely and proper disaster management.
