국내 코로나19 확진자 총 24,164, 73명 추가, 확진자 100명 이하 5일째, 소아 다기관염증증후근 환자 2명 첫 확인

COVID 19 daily infections add 73 to total 24,164, new virus cases under 100 for 5th day, children's MIS cases found for the first time


The country's daily COVID 19 cases stayed below 100 for the 5th straight day today. However, the country remained cautious about another potential uptick in new infections after the long Chuseok(추석) holidays.


Also, the first 2 cases of multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children were found in the country today. They were in their teens and preteens, and are in medical facilities located in Seoul(서울).


In total, there were 73 more COVID 19 cases today, including 64 local infections, raising the accumulated caseload to 24,091.


It marked a slight rise from the 64 cases added yesterday and a drop from 75 cases reported on Sat. Since the daily infections hit 133 on Wed, they have been in double-digit figures. The drop was in part attributed to fewer tests carried out over the Chuseok(추석) holidays that began on Wed.



While millions of people normally travel across the nation over the Korean equivalent of Thanksgiving, health authorities advised people to refrain from visiting their families and relatives this year.


As a result, the health authorities said that around 30 million people travelled across the country over this holiday, which was down 3.1% from the previous year.


The number of people travelling by trains and buses also decreased by 57 and 55% respectively over the cited period as well.


Therefore, as of today, the total number of infected across the country has reached 24,164 among whom 21,886 have been lifted from quarantine after recovery. There are 1,856 people who are under quarantine, with 107 of them in severe condition, and 422 deaths from the virus so far.
