For 4 weeks from next week, the number of allowed private meetings is limited to 6 people in the metropolitan area and 8 people in non-metropolitan areas.

Prime Minister Kim Bu-gyeom announced a plan to strengthen quarantine measures in the same way at the meeting of the Central Safety and Disaster Response Headquarters presided over at the government complex in Seoul on the morning of the 3rd.

Until now, the maximum number of people in the metropolitan area was 10 people and the maximum number of people in non-metropolitan areas was 12 people.

Prime Minister Kim also said, "In order to reduce the risk of infection in our daily life, we plan to apply the 'Quarantine Pass' to the entirety. There will be a probation period,” he said.

Instead, it was decided to apply the quarantine pass for teenagers from February next year.
