quarantine authorities plan to use this distance adjustment plan as a 'stepping stone' to a gradual recovery of daily life.

As the vaccination completion rate has risen to 61.6% and 71.6% for adults over the age of 18, it is highly likely that the quarantine standards will be further relaxed mainly for those who have completed vaccination.

A plan to increase the number of gatherings up to 6 people, including those who have completed vaccination, to 8 people in the 4th stage area including the metropolitan area is a strong idea.

A plan to apply the relaxation of the number of people limit to other multi-use facilities besides restaurants and cafes is also being considered.

Additional incentives such as watching sports events are expected to be provided to those who have completed the vaccination.

However, it is known that there is a disagreement within the government about extending the business hours of restaurants and cafes to midnight only for those who have completed vaccination.

This distance adjustment plan is expected to be maintained for two weeks, after which it is expected to go through a transitional period until the point of transition to a gradual recovery of daily life.

[Kwon Jun-wook/Second Vice-Director of the Central Quarantine Countermeasures Headquarters: This is a situation where we can gradually adjust from social distancing to personal distance in this way, and furthermore, closely adjusting the situation after the adjustment of the distance, etc.]

As the speed of vaccination is accelerating, the completion of vaccination for 70% of the population is expected to be a day or two earlier than the 25th mentioned earlier. It is expected to be.
