additional confirmed cases was around 1,600. While the number of patients has been decreasing in the past three weeks, the proportion of those who have completed the corona vaccine is expected to reach 70% by next weekend at the earliest. In that case, you may start a step-by-step recovery from the 1st of the next month after the 2-week distance adjustment plan is over.

<Reporter> At

this high school in Guro-gu, Seoul, 17 people were infected after the first confirmed case on the 10th.

[Park Yu-mi / Director of Citizens' Health Bureau of Seoul City: It has been found that students live on campus for a long time, and some students have taken after-school classes together.] The

cumulative number of infections in the apartment complex in Dongjak-gu, Seoul has increased to 54.

Although sporadic infections continue, the daily average number of confirmed cases in Korea, which exceeded 2,000, has decreased to 1,557 in three weeks.

As of 0:00 this morning, the completion rate of vaccination is 62.5% of the population, and it is not long until 70%, which is the transition condition for 'step-by-step recovery of daily life'.

The government predicted that the target would be achieved by next weekend at the earliest, or Monday the 25th at the latest.

Those who were vaccinated on the 25th will be recognized as completing the vaccination on the 9th of the next month, but as the distance adjustment plan ends this month, it is possible to start a gradual recovery from the 1st of the next month.

[Lee Ki-il / Central Disaster and Safety Countermeasures Headquarters 1st Controller: From November, daily recovery will be possible.

We strongly hope that this will be the last adjustment period for social distancing.] The

quarantine authorities will make a final decision on the transition time over the next two weeks by looking at the quarantine status, such as the rate of completion of inoculation, the number of confirmed cases and the number of deaths.

In addition, it has been repeatedly confirmed that wearing a mask during the daily recovery process is a quarantine rule that will be maintained until the end.

He emphasized that even if the vaccination completion rate is 85%, it is difficult to remove the wearing of indoor masks.
