COVID 19 daily infections add 88 to total 26,043, new cases fall below 100, sporadic cluster infections still worrisome

국내 코로나19 확진자 총 26,043 88명 추가, 100명 이하 확진자, 집단감염 지속되

COVID 19 daily infections add 88 to total 26,043, new cases fall below 100, sporadic cluster infections still worrisome

 

 

The number of COVID 19 virus cases fell back below 100 again today. However, concerns over a potential spike in infections still linger over sporadic cluster infections at risk-prone facilities, such as hospitals and nursing homes.

 

The country added 88 more COVID 19 cases, including 72 domestic infections, raising the total caseload to 26,043.

 

The latest increase marks a sharp drop from 119 reported yesterday, but a rise from 61 posted Sunday.

 

Group infections from hospitals and nursing homes were largely to blame for the latest uptick.

 

Health authorities still believe that the COVID 19 pandemic is at a manageable level in the country since it eased the social distancing scheme to the lowest level on Oct. 12th. This allowed the public to resume most of their daily activities while following basic guidelines.


 

Therefore, as of today, the total number of infected across the country has reached 26,043 among whom 23,981 have been lifted from quarantine after recovery. There are 1,602 people who are under quarantine, with 52 of them in severe condition, and 460 deaths from the virus so far.
