Yesterday (8th), the number of new corona19 confirmed patients decreased significantly from the day before to 500.
Also, from tomorrow, vaccination appointments for seniors aged 65 to 69 will begin.
However, there are still cases of quarantine violations.

Police approach the thick entrance door found in the underground passage.
[Police: Did you hear a person's voice?
Open the door.
It opens.] When the
locked door is pulled out and entered, people run away from the inside.
[Police: Come out, come out.]
42 people, including entertainment business owners, were found in 19 rooms.
In the last two weeks, over 4,900 cases were detected for violating the quarantine regulations.
The number of cases of group infection is not decreasing, and 11 patients, including nursing care workers and patients, were confirmed at a nursing hospital in Yeosu, Jeollanam-do.
Six of them were found to be infected while waiting for the second dose after receiving the first dose of AstraZeneca in March.
The quarantine authorities still believe that expanding vaccination is the most reliable way to curb the spread of infection.
The problem is that there are many concerns about adverse reactions after vaccination in the elderly, where the fatality rate of infection is high.
For those aged 70-74, who started appointments for AstraZeneca vaccine from the 6th, the reservation rate is only 26.2% until yesterday.
[Son Young-rae / Head of Social Strategy Division, Central Accident Control Center: In the case of rare thrombosis, which is worried about side effects, it occurs in 0.001 per 100 people. Fellow citizens, especially the elderly, I sincerely ask. Senior citizens must receive vaccinations.] From
tomorrow, reservations for AstraZeneca vaccines will also start from 65 to 69 years of age.
The actual vaccinations for seniors who have made reservations will start on the 27th.
