As the spread of Corona 19 in Korea continues, the number of new confirmed cases today (24th) was in the early 500 range.

The Central Defense Response Headquarters announced that as of today's 0 o'clock, the number of new corona 19 confirmed cases increased by 538, accumulating 136,467.

It was 47 people less than yesterday (585), reaching 500 for two days in a row.

On the 3rd and 10th, the first and second Monday of May, the number fell to 400.

Today, the infection route of new confirmed cases is 513 local outbreaks and 25 foreign inflows.

Looking at the recent outbreak of Corona 19, the '4th epidemic' continues as sporadic infections, large and small, have continued throughout the country.

From the 18th to today, the number of new confirmed cases that occurred in the last week was 528 → 654 → 646 → 561 → 666 → 585 → 538 each day.
