<Anchor> Although the

vaccination rate has increased and quarantine rules have been relaxed somewhat, it is not a situation that will slow the tension. Even today (6th), although the number of tests decreased over the weekend, the number of new confirmed cases is still expected to be around 1,400.

<Reporter> At

a church in Eunpyeong-gu, Seoul, 20 people including church members and their families were confirmed with Corona 19.

This place was ordered to suspend operations last July because it exceeded the allowed number of face-to-face worship services.

The church has requested the court to suspend execution and resumed face-to-face worship.

We continued face-to-face worship every week while wearing protective clothing with a promise to keep the quarantine rules, but again exceeded the allowed number of 19 people and three negligence fines were imposed, eventually leading to a group infection.

[Eunpyeong-gu Office Manager: (face-to-face worship) Sometimes we have 50 people, sometimes we have 90 people, and in this way, we have worshiped 4 times and 5 times… .]

Group infections are also continuing in daycare centers and elementary, middle and high schools across the country.

At a daycare center in Seo-gu, Incheon, 15 people were infected in three days, 13 people were confirmed at an elementary school in Asan-si, Chungnam, 9 people in a middle school in Suncheon-si, Jeollanam-do, and 8 people in a high school in Jeonju-si, Jeollabuk-do.

Yesterday, the number of new confirmed cases in Korea was 1,490, continuing the four-digit number for over 60 days.

The percentage of patients whose infection route is unknown also reached an all-time high of 36%.

The death toll increased by 6, and the number of critically ill patients was counted to 363. In some areas such as Daejeon, Gyeongbuk and Jeonnam, there was an emergency because there were not enough hospital beds.
