China News Service, September 22. According to Korean media reports, South Korea’s Central Anti-epidemic Countermeasures Headquarters announced on the 22nd that 61 new cases of new coronary pneumonia have been confirmed, with a total of 23,106 confirmed cases.
As of that day, the number of new cases in a single day in South Korea has remained in double digits for three consecutive days, and it is gradually decreasing.
However, due to the large proportion of cases of unknown infection routes and frequent collective infections in various regions, the number of confirmed cases may rise again at any time.
Among the new cases notified on the 22nd, 51 were community infections, of which 36 were in the metropolitan area, which is still the most.
At present, the number of newly confirmed cases in a single day in the metropolitan area has also remained at a double-digit level for 5 consecutive days, and is showing a downward trend.
In addition, 10 new imported cases were newly added that day.
