spread after the Chuseok holiday is frightening, but considering the incubation period, there is a possibility that the aftermath of a full-scale migration will appear from now on. We are facing the biggest challenge once again as to whether we will be able to take one step forward with a step-by-step recovery of daily life after about a month as scheduled.
By the way, this is reporter Kim Ki-tae.
a sports facility in Goyang, Gyeonggi-do, a total of 31 people have been infected since the 22nd, the last day of the Chuseok holiday.
Of these, 13 were confirmed to be family-to-family transmission.
At a daycare center in Ansan, where 18 people were collectively infected, five confirmed cases were revealed as family members, and two additional family members were infected at a business in Busan where the employee was confirmed right after the holiday.
Considering the incubation period of the virus, the aftermath of the Chuseok holiday, which significantly increased travel volume, is expected to become more pronounced in the next 1-2 weeks.

particular, there are two three-day holidays next month, National Foundation Day and Hangeul Day, so there is a possibility that the number of confirmed cases will increase further.
Due to the sporadic spread, the rate of confirmed cases with unknown routes of infection in the last two weeks was 38.7%, a record high.
In response to concerns that the government's plan to switch the quarantine system to 'with Corona' could cause setbacks, the government said that there is no change in its plan to push for a step-by-step recovery plan from the end of October.
The government is announcing a new distance adjustment plan to be applied from the 4th of next month this week, but it seems difficult to ease the stage when the number of new confirmed cases is around 3,000.
