The Central Defense Response Headquarters announced that as of 0 o'clock on the 1st, the number of new corona19 confirmed cases in Korea increased by 451, accumulating 34,652 people.

After the 29th to 30th of last month (450 → 438), it recorded 400 people for three consecutive days.

The number of new confirmed cases per day recorded 500 for three consecutive days on the 26th to 28th of last month (581 → 555 → 503), and then fell to 400 on the 29th.

Looking at the infection route of 451 new confirmed patients on this day, 420 local outbreaks and 31 foreign inflows.

While the quarantine authorities officially formulated the'third epidemic', the number of new confirmed cases has recently dropped from 500 to 400, but it is too early to conclude that the spread has halted as this also reflects the effect of a decrease in the number of tests on weekends and holidays.

Rather, infectious disease experts as well as quarantine authorities have warned that if the current trend continues, up to 1,000 people may come out a day in one to two weeks.
