<Reporter> The number of
new corona19 confirmed cases in Korea came out yesterday, with 392 people coming out and dropping back to 300 in one day.
The number of inspections, from 40 to 50,000 during the week, was cut by about half yesterday, and the weekend effect appears to have also had an impact.
Among the new confirmed cases, 369 were domestic cases excluding 23 foreign inflows.
By region, 249 people were confirmed in the metropolitan area, including 127 people in Seoul and 99 people in Gyeonggi Province, and 120 people, including 19 in Busan and 17 in Gyeongnam, were confirmed in non-metropolitan areas.
In Gwangju, a new group infection occurred in a church, and 15 members of the church who had worshiped together and worked as a choir were confirmed.
In Sejong City, 10 family members, including parents, children, and grandchildren in their 70s, were confirmed. In addition, sporadic infections occurred nationwide, centering on workplaces, screen golf courses, baths, and nursing hospitals.
As 12 people died during the treatment of Corona 19, the cumulative death toll was 1,349.
The government is planning to review the current social distancing, which ends at the end of this month, and whether or not to adjust the ban on meetings of five or more people while monitoring the trend of confirmed cases this week.
In addition, we will announce specific vaccination plans for the Corona 19 vaccine on the 28th, this Thursday.
About 32 million to 36 million people, including medical institution workers, people living in group facilities, workers over 65 years old, and adults with chronic diseases, are among the priority targets.
