While the spread of Corona 19 in Korea continues, the number of new confirmed cases today (26th) reached 500.

The Central Defense Response Headquarters announced that as of today's 0 o'clock, the number of new corona19 confirmed patients increased by 500, accumulating 119,000.

It decreased by 144 from yesterday (644) and fell to 500 in six days since the 20th (549).

However, this is due to the effect of a sharp decrease in the number of inspections on weekends and holidays compared to weekdays, so it is difficult to say that the spreading trend has stopped.

In fact, in recent years, the number of confirmed cases decreases until the beginning of the week and then increases rapidly from the middle of the week.

On the 19th to 20th (532, 549) and 12th to 13th (587, 542) last week and the week before that, the number of people was 500, but from Wednesday it soared to 700.

Looking at the path of infection of new confirmed cases, local outbreaks were 469 and overseas inflows were 31.

Looking at the recent outbreak of Corona 19, the '4th outbreak' began in the aftermath of group infections everywhere before the aftermath of the'third pandemic', which began in earnest since mid-November last year, even subsided.

From the 20th of this month to today, the number of new confirmed cases for the past week is 549 → 731 → 735 → 797 → 785 → 644 → 500 per day.

During this period, 500 units are numbered twice, 600 units are numbered one, and 700 units are numbered four times.
