As the'third pandemic of Corona 19' began in earnest, the number of new confirmed patients on the 27th again reached 500.

On this day, there were also confirmed cases in 16 cities and provinces excluding Daegu, and 30 and 20 patients occurred in Gyeongnam, Chungnam, Busan, and Jeonbuk, respectively.

The government and experts on infectious diseases predict that if the current spread cannot be stopped, more than 1,000 confirmed cases per day may come out.
