The quarantine authorities explained that the decrease in the epidemic had reached a critical point,

[Park Hyang / Chief Quarantine Headquarters of the Central Accident Control Headquarters (last 1st): Increase in indoor activity and movement in summer, decrease in vaccination effect, change in composition ratio of detailed mutations, etc. We believe that this is the main cause.] We predicted that

this type of congestion would repeat for the time being.
