Amid the declining trend of the domestic Corona 19 '3rd pandemic', the number of new confirmed cases today (19th) reached the second half of 300.

The Central Defense Response Headquarters (Bangdaebon) announced that as of today's 0 o'clock, the number of new corona19 confirmed cases increased by 386, accumulating 73,115 people.

The number of people decreased by 3 from yesterday (389), reaching 300 for two consecutive days.

The number of confirmed patients in the 300 range two days in a row has been about 8 weeks since November 24-25 (349 → 382 people) last year, in the early stages of the'third pandemic'.

In addition to the overall decline, the impact of holidays, which decreased the number of inspections, seems to be partly reflected here.

Usually weekend and holiday impacts extend through the beginning of the week.

The number of new confirmed cases, which had recorded 1,000 people a day until last month, started to decline gradually in the new year, and recently maintained the 400-500 range, and then went down to 300.

Looking at the infection route of today's new confirmed cases, 351 local outbreaks and 35 overseas inflows.

The third pandemic, which started in earnest since mid-November last year, has peaked on the 25th of last month (1,240 people) and continues to decline.
