Starting today (3rd), students in 1st grade in high school and 2nd grade in elementary school and 3rd and 4th grade students started school. However, there are many schools that have been suspended from the metropolitan area, so parents are still concerned.

178,000 people in high school 1st, 2nd, and 3rd to 4th grade elementary school started their first class after corona.

As of today, high school has all grades, and two-thirds of all grades in primary and junior high school are face-to-face.

If you add up to 281 million people who attended school, about 77% of all kindergarten, elementary, middle and high school students attended school.

However, the number of students who attend school for one day in order to reduce the density in the school should not exceed two-thirds of the school's total capacity.

In particular, elementary and junior high schools in the metropolitan area, where there is a high risk of spreading regional infections, should keep the number of attendance to less than a third.

Nevertheless, there is still anxiety among parents, especially in the metropolitan area with high population density and high floating population.

Yesterday, in the metropolitan area, 531 schools postponed or stopped attending school because of Corona19, accounting for 99% of all unsuccessful schools.

In particular, 493 schools could not be opened in Bucheon, Incheon, and Bupyeong and Gyeyang, Gyeonggi Province, which extended the suspension of schoolchildren except 10th to 10 days due to a collective infection from the Coupang Logistics Center.
