Corona Updates

New virus cases over 300 for 3rd day, greater Seoul area in 3rd wave of outbreak

New clusters of infections continue to pop up in connection to everyday spaces such as cafes, restaurants, karaoke rooms, schools, workplaces and indoor sports facilities, as well as hospitals and nursing homes, which complicates health authorities’ efforts to identify and trace sources of infections.

 

  • Sinchon – Yonsei
  • religious gatherings (north and south Seoul)
  • university hospital in Gwangju
  • facility for disabled people in Cheorwon
  • middle school in South Gyeongsang
  • Incheon family gathering

 

The number of COVID-19 cases per 1 million people in South Korea is in the lowest three among Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development member states

 

1.5 Level Social Distancing – May go to 2 Level

Suncheon – Level 2

Gatherings 100 or more are banned

Virus-prone businesses suspended

Restrain from year-end gatherings and non-essential outdoor activities (like what?)
