Yesterday (25th), there were 6,246 new confirmed cases of Corona 19 in one day, keeping it below 10,000 for the 17th day.



The number of confirmed cases announced on Sunday increased by 180 from the same day last week, and it is the first time in 7 weeks that the number of confirmed cases has increased compared to the previous week.



Among the confirmed cases, 135 were imported from abroad, the highest since the end of February.



This seems to be the effect of the increase in the number of inbound travelers as the number of inbound travelers is exempted from quarantine and the number of international flights has increased.



The number of patients with severe severe cases recorded double digits on the 15th day, with 54 patients, 4 more than yesterday.



The death toll stood at 6, bringing the total number of deaths so far to 24,522.



The cumulative fatality rate was found to be 0.13%.



In Europe, Corona 19 is showing some resurgence in the summer vacation season due to an increase in floating population.



Portugal, where the number of confirmed cases fell to 800 at the end of April, rose to 1,400 this week.



Germany, France and the UK also saw an increase in the number of confirmed cases from the beginning of this month.



Experts analyze that Korea is also at risk of a resurgence when the sub-systemic mutation of Omicron, which is spreading in Europe, is introduced and the summer vacation season begins in earnest.



The quarantine authorities said, "This summer is an important time when it can become a fuse for the corona virus again."
