As of 9:00 p.m. on Saturday, the 21st, 18,770 people across the country were confirmed with COVID-19.

This is 4,322 fewer people than the 23,92nd at the same time the previous day.

The number of new confirmed cases to be announced today will increase even more, but it is likely to stay in the 10,000 range or record the low 20,000 range.

Although the number of confirmed cases is steadily decreasing, the government is considering a plan to expand the target of the fourth dose of the vaccine from the current '60 years old and older' to '50 years old and older', seeing that a resurgence may start this summer.
