[사회]”Heavy metropolitan area” again, 600 people … decision to upgrade in the afternoon



[앵커]As the spread of Corona 19 continued, the number of confirmed cases again exceeded 600 yesterday.

The situation in the metropolises is especially serious. The government decides whether to increase the distance this afternoon.

Contact the Ministry of Social Affairs, the rapporteur Seo Bong-guk!

The effect of distance does not appear yet, and the spread has not stopped.

[기자]That’s correct.

Yesterday, the number of newly confirmed cases was 631.

There were 599 domestic and 32 foreign patients, and the cumulatively confirmed number was 37,546.

The number of bogus patients increased by 4 to 125 and 5 deaths, and the cumulative death toll was 545.

For nine months of the day, it quickly climbed to 600 people, but yesterday it dropped slightly to 500 people, but again to 600 people, the number also increased.

Although the number of inspections on weekends is declining compared to weekdays, the fact that about 600 people show up is proof that the current epidemic is serious.

In particular, in the Seoul area, where 253 people came out, more than a thousand people happened in four days, and the total number exceeded 10,000.

Seoul exploded during a group infection with Sarangail Church and Liberation Day in August, but declined after September and spread again rapidly from mid-October.

In addition, 34 people in Busan, 15 people in Gyeongnam, 14 people in Chungam, 13 people in Chungbuk, etc. The prevalence is also strong in the Busan Gyeongnam and Chungcheong districts.

As new group infections, large and small, persist in many places without the effect of distancing, the government’s quarantine response is increasing.

Accordingly, the government plans to hold a meeting of the Central Headquarters for Disaster and Security Countermeasures at 3 a.m., chaired by Prime Minister Chung Xia-unun, to discuss measures to strengthen remoteness and hold a briefing to announce.

[앵커]If the distance level is adjusted upwards, the difficulties for the citizens will increase.

[기자]That’s correct.

The Ministry of Health and Welfare, which is the competent ministry, already opened the Committee for Life Prevention yesterday to collect expert opinions and opinions from related ministries.

As a big expected measure for reinforcement, there is a great possibility that the metropolitan area will be further upgraded to 2.5 steps, instead of continuing the second step + α measures that should be completed tomorrow.

In this case, the karaoke room should be closed, no more than 50 people should be gathered, and the number of attending schools at each level should be reduced to ⅓ or less.

Step 1.5 applies in the metropolitan area, except for some metropolitan and core organizations that independently implement step 2.

In the case of Seoul, in addition to the central government, it has already introduced an emergency measure to close Seoul after 9 pm two weeks from yesterday until the 18th.

So far, it has been delivered by the Ministry of Social Affairs.
