Today (29th), the number of new confirmed cases of Corona 19 is expected to be around 2,000 as it was yesterday. Although the number of patients is increasing recently, the government has decided to proceed with the step-by-step recovery plan as scheduled. The final draft is also released today.

The first news, reporter Jang Se-man reports.


30 people, including users and workers, were confirmed at a day care facility for the elderly in Namwon, Jeollabuk-do.

Most of the users are in their 70s or older, and this is a breakthrough infection case that was vaccinated in April or May.

At an elementary school in Gimcheon, North Gyeongsang Province, 24 people were infected three days after the first confirmed case on the 26th.

After the expansion of school attendance this semester, the number of confirmed cases of all students also increased, making it the second highest number of confirmed cases per day for a week recently.

The total number of confirmed cases increased for four days in a row, rising to the 2,000 level again in 20 days.

Also, due to the delta mutation, the vaccine prevention effect is about 60% It was analyzed that the cause of the increase in the number of confirmed cases was the decline in immunity and the lack of vaccination or a decrease in immunity due to the completion of vaccination a long time ago.

The government has decided to announce the final plan for the gradual recovery of daily life as scheduled.

Even if the number of confirmed cases increases, it is impossible to delay the start of daily recovery on the 1st of the next month.

In the final plan, the quarantine measures are divided into three stages. First, the number of people at the meeting will be increased to 10 people including those who have completed vaccination, and the multi-use facility will be open 24 hours.

Regarding the vaccine pass target, it has been decided that if only the basic vaccination is completed, the booster shot will be recognized as a completed vaccination even if no additional vaccination is received.
