New virus cases lowest in 48 days, virus curbs in place ahead of major holiday

 

South Korea's COVID 19 cases increased by the smallest number in nearly two months today. However, the country continues to step up its virus fight ahead of a major holiday later this week.

 

The country added 50 more COVID 19 cases, including 40 local infections. Therefore, the total caseload has been brought to 23,661.

 

The daily new cases are the lowest in 48 days since Aug. 11th when 34 cases were reported. This is just before a new cluster of infections emerged from a church and an anti-government rally in Seoul(서울) on Aug. 15th.

 

The daily new number is also sharply down from 95 a day earlier, but the fall in daily virus cases also came as virus tests tend to be fewer over the weekend than weekdays.


Daily new local infections stayed in double digits for the 4th straight day after the country reported 95 on Friday, 49 on Sat. and 73 on Sunday.

 

Therefore, as of today, the total number of infected across the country has reached 23,661 among whom 21,292 have been lifted from quarantine after recovery. There are 1,963 people who are under quarantine, with 120 of them in severe condition, and 406 deaths from the virus so far.
