2. Korean firms slam WHO’s listing of game disorder

기사요약: 세계보건기구가 게임중독을 질병으로 분류할 것이라고 발표한 가운데, 국내 게임업계, 학회, 기관 등이 반발.

[2] A committee comprising 88 organizations, including the labor union of Korea’s biggest game company Nexon, opposed the decision saying it would “deprive a child’s right to play,” as decreed in Article 31 of the United Nation’s Convention on Rights of the Child.

*comprise: 구성되다
*deprive A of B: A에게서 B를 빼앗다

*teenagers: 10대
*give A a sense of guilt: A에게 죄책감을 안기다

[4] On Saturday, members of WHO unanimously voted for the adoption of the 11th revision to the International Classification of Disease, or ICD-11, at the 72nd World Health Assembly held May 20 through 28 in Geneva, Switzerland.

*vote for: -에 찬성하는 쪽으로 투표하다
*adoption: 도입

[5] The new guidelines will go into effect from January 2022, by which the WHO member nations will need to have devised measures to treat and prevent gaming disorder.
