The number of confirmers in Korea exceeded 1,300. Yesterday (6th), the number of new confirmed patients was only 47, not exceeding 50 for two consecutive days. The government assessed that the so-called social distance policy to refrain from gathering and not go outside whenever possible is working. However, it was decided that the management of people from foreign countries and young people who had no symptoms even if they were infected was important.

The government evaluated that the effect of 'high-strength social distance' began to appear.

Given that the incubation period of the Corona 19 virus is usually 5 to 7 days, the effect of the first week of distance is appearing now.

[Kwon Joon-wook / Deputy Head of Central Defense Countermeasures Headquarters: The actual transcripts of any occurrences appearing today and yesterday are the first week's transcripts with strong social distances from March 22 to 28.]

The problem is that the nature of the Corona 19, which spreads even in asymptomatic conditions, can be replayed at any time.

The government is particularly concerned about the possibility of young people with asymptomatic infections being the mediator of 'quiet transmission'.

[Jung Se-Kyun / Prime Minister: People are gathering in line in some clubs and nightlife. I have to worry about the situation where young people become quiet preachers.]

As a result, the government decided to conduct an intensive on-site inspection of clubs and emotional taverns every night from 11:00 a.m. to 4 a.m.

The method will also be extended to a joint inspection involving the police on weekends, away from the inspection centered on sanitation officials.

When entering, we will check for fever and take measures such as administrative orders in case of violation of prevention guidelines such as maintaining a 1 ~ 2m gap between users and wearing a mask.
